PROBLEM WITH ENABLING CAPTIVE PORTAL..



  • HELLO, IM STILL A NEWBIE AT PFSENSE AND IM HAVING TROUBLE SETTING UP CAPTIVE PORTAL, I CAN'T ACCESS TO ANY SITE WHENEVER I ENABLE IT. THIS IS THE TUTORIAL THAT I FOLLOWED. https://turbofuture.com/computers/How-to-Set-Up-a-Captive-Portal-Using-pfSense

    HELP ME PLEASE. THANKS!  :(



  • No need to shout.

    So what are your settings exactly? Post some screenshots of your CP config. Also post a screenshot of your DHCP config. Do you get a landing page and are unable to log in, or do you not even get a landing page when you enable the CP? Details, please.



  • I am a total newbie at pfsense and has a little knowledge about CLI. I'm just using the WebGUI on configuring pfsense.
    I can't see any landing page, the page just keeps on loading. What screenshot do you need? my configuration from webgui or cli?



  • These are all GUI. Your captive portal config is under 'Services/Captive Portal' and your DHCP under 'Service/DHCP'. Your DHCP config should have your DNS (name-server) config set for all your clients in order for the captive portal page to load. Without a valid DNS server set on your clients, your captive portal login page will not load. This is just one possible cause for your issue, but without knowing your configuration settings it's impossible to tell.



  • Hi, I'm also a newbie here.
    I already set my captive portal page and it works in a view only. but the problem is I want the page will pop up automatically.

    thanks
