Captive portal + windows 2012 r2 radius server. wont show up



  • Hi Guys,

    its my first time posting here. i hope someone can shed some light on my situation.

    this is my setup:

    vm1: windows server 2012 r2 with AD,DHCP, DNS and NPS
    vm2:pFsense disabled dhcp and uses the windows server DNS.

    now i setup a radius in win 2012r2 i pretty much followed the guides available. but whenever i enable the captive portal it just wont show up and the web pages wont load. what could be the reason?

    TIA



  • Your clients have to be able to resolve DNS correctly before the CP page will load. So your Windows DNS server should have an external forwarder set and your DHCP settings should have the Windows server set as your clients' primary name server.

    Hi the dns server external forwarder where should i point it? should i just point it to 8.8.8.8?

    i can confirm that the dhcp and dns is being used in the clients pc is coming from the windows server though. i use a VM for client pc.

    EDIT: adding the FQDN and ip on the DNS of windows server did the trick.
