Redirection of authenticated users

  • Hi,

    i use pfsense 2.0 (pfSense-2.0-BETA1-2g-20100529-0228) as a captive portal.

    Everything works fine except the redirect after user authentication.

    I set up captive portal to redirect connections to after authentication, but often after giving username and password correctly the page of the authentication remains.

    What could be the problem?

    Thanks in advance.

  • Other informations on the subject.

    When the users are authenticated (even if the redirection does not work) then they can browse properly.
    Also in the configuration i am using squid in transparent mode.

    Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

  • Thank you.

    It seems to work.
