Free design of login page

From now on it's possible to design an indiviudal login page (Landingpage). Therefore you can easily use frameworks and templates for example bootstrap inklusive responsive design. The already known login page is still available.

In addition to the free design also the texts and translations can be freely changed.

This means maximum flexibility.

The integrated Code Editor allows easy access to the entire setting and also to the login page via web browser. New designs can be exported easily and transferred to other systems.

Free design of login page assumes IAC-BOX version 8.0 and can be activated in WebAdmin menu "Client Logon / Customized Logon Page".

Password Login

On numerous requests of our partners we have implemented the option, that customers can login only using their password, without username. This allows a more convenient login for guests. This option is available for login using desktop devices as well as mobile devices.

To activate this feature, enable "Password Login" in WebAdmin menu "Client Logon / Design" and enable the checkbox "Password Login" for at least on ticket template.

Batch Access API Extension

Batch Access API has been extended by the following remote commands:

  • Launch Online update
  • Log with Login and Logout
  • Search via MAC

This feature allows you to request any System-, Log- and Statistic data (e.g. Statistics, Application Log, currently users online, hardware status, ...) or even perform a system backup remotely using a simple HTTP request for further processing. A detailled documentation how to use this module is available in our Documentation area.


With IACBOX 8.0 it is possible to route between Surf-Zone and Management-Zone. This means controlled guest access to various services, which are located within the Management-Zone (e.g. webserver for internal usage).
