Captive Portal on 80 or 443?
I see that Captive Portal runs on port 8000 for HTTP and 8001 for HTTPS, but was wondering if it were possible to run these services on port 80 or 443? Code changes required, or a setting somewhere that I've missed?
Ideally, I'd like to do management of the box via HTTPS and run captive portal on port 80 since management isn't too concerned about people getting on the captive portal….
Why does the port number matter all that much? The redirection is handled automatically, and shouldn't really be all that noticeable to the end user.
Generally, I agree with you… But, we have some corporate guest users that have laptops locked down so tight, their browsers can't go to non-standard ports. Only 80 or 443. Even their corporate tech support can't get it to work.
I've now been informed that this is not the case - That the portion that was locked down was relative to the users accessing a Enterprise authenticated network…
So, I'm going to try a standard Captive Portal...
