Captive portal on WAN interface



  • How do I set captive portal on WAN interface? I can only select LAN or OPT interfaces for captive portal.

    thx



  • You don't set it on the WAN interface.  That defeats the entire purpouse of a captive portal.



  • My setup is:

    Internet
    I
    ADSL WIRELESS ROUTER/FIREWALL
    I                I
                I          wireless clients
    I               
    WAN               
    I               
    pfSense firewall             
    I        I             
    LAN    OPT(LAN2)

    Now what I want:
    Wireless clients get their IP address by DHCP on pfSense
    When they try to go online get captive portal page
    PfSense to be firewall beatwen LAN, LAN2 and LAN3(wireless)

    Is it possible?

    Till now I have been using gentoo box and iptables, and i everything worked, but now i decied to switch to pfSense, because I don't wan't to spend "2 day's" of reading and "3 day's" of configuration for allmost everything.

    Thank you for your answer.



  • turn youre pfsense server `180 degrees
    so that lan gets to be wan
    add a route on the lan to 0.0.0.0 / 255.255.255.255 with the ip of youre wireless router as gateway
