Captive portal with open ldap



  • Hello,
    I'm trying to set up a captive portal with user authentication, I have to use an openLDAP server for authentication
    I have set up the openLDAP and also the pfsense gateway and when i go to diagnostics->authentication I can login with the username and password retrieved from the LDAP. But when I want to login into the captive portal the login process fails every time I try it. What is the problem here? Is there any possibility to use the the LDAP for the Captive Portal?

    Thanks in advance

    Captive Portal does not currently support LDAP.

    You could setup a FreeRADIUS instance that uses LDAP for its authentication source, so the Captive Portal can hit FreeRADIUS which then hits LDAP.



  • hello ,
    tough able to login into the pfsense webconsole using  the ldap user by giving it the webcfg privileges , it just works.
