Captive Portal does not work for me



  • Hi,

    I'm using pfsense-2.0Beta3 on my ALIX box with 4 Network interfaces. I activated the Captive Portal for one LAN and a WLAN interface. But that does not work for me. Users still are able to access the internet, thes arn't redirected to the login website. So what can I do, to make the Captive Portal to work?

    Or does it have something to do with the firewall settings? I attached the screenshot of the only rule, I have. (Without that rule, I can't access the network)



  • After enabling the captive portal you probably need to reset firewall states. See Diagnostics -> States, Reset States tab. I would guess enabling captive portal qualifies as substantial changes to the firewall and/or NAT rules.

    Even after the firewall states reset, the captive portal does not work for me ;(



  • A lot of work has gone into pfSense 2.0 since BETA3. Its probably time to upgrade your firmware.
