This is how The Receptionist for iPad is traditionally implemented. 

  • Both the iPad and the printer are connected to the guest WiFi network
  • As long as it is on the same subnet the printer can be connected via Ethernet (requires a QL-series printer that includes an ethernet port).
  • The Receptionist for iPad only requires access to the Internet (no access to internal corporate assets is required).  The iPad will connect to the following secure cloud-based URLs using port 443:
  • https://app.thereceptionist.com
  • https://reception-prod.s3.amazonaws.com
  • wss://ws.pusherapp.com

Alternate configuration: Dedicated Access Point Configuration

  • With the Dedicated Access Point Configuration you can restrict one ethernet port that supplies Internet service to the dedicated access point.  
  • You can turn off SSID broadcast for additional security in addition to using a strong password and wireless security protocols
  • The Receptionist for iPad only requires access to the Internet (no access to internal corporate assets is required).  The iPad will connect to the following secure cloud-based URLs using port 443:
  • https://app.thereceptionist.com
  • https://reception-prod.s3.amazonaws.com
  • wss://ws.pusherapp.com

Alternate Configuration: Ethernet Only Configuration

  • While this has only been implemented in a few of our customer sites, a third configuration is to use an Ethernet to Lightning adapter to connect the iPad to the network and Ethernet for the printer  (requires a QL-series printer that includes an ethernet port).
  • This configuration would require that the customer procure the Ethernet to Lightning adapter.
  • The Receptionist for iPad only requires access to the Internet (no access to internal corporate assets is required).  The iPad will connect to the following secure cloud-based URLs using port 443:
  • https://app.thereceptionist.com
  • https://reception-prod.s3.amazonaws.com
  • wss://ws.pusherapp.com
