Captive portal page not showing up

  • Is anyone else having problems with the captive portal not showing up?
    I have to use the direct address for it to show up.

  • Works fine, I just set up another 2.0 CP system yesterday. Make sure you're using the DNS forwarder or an allowed IP for DNS.

  • I am using the latest snapshot 2.0-BETA4 (i386) built on Thu Dec 16 04:59:28 EST 2010.  DNS Forwarder is enabled, and the only way I am able to get the page to show up is if I manually type in the address for the captive portal. I have to resort back to the Dec 5th snap to make it work.

    EDIT: I have traced it back to the 2.0-BETA4 (i386) built on Wed Dec 8 22:39:45 EST 2010 build.  At this build, captive portal is not working.

    I am running squid and lightsquid only on this box.  Squid is set up in transparency mode.  I have 7 vlans set up and one of them harbors the WRLS with the captive portal.

  • I traced the problem to snapshots at the beginning of Nov. The latest one I found that worked was the oct 30 snapshot.

  • Am using the newest snapshot from today 2.0-BETA4 (i386) built on Fri Dec 17 14:14:00 EST 2010.  I still have to manually type in the address for the captive portal page.

    At least I found an answer in the redmine search

    The shell command

    /sbin/sysctl net.inet.ip.fastforwarding=1

    works for me.

  • Same proble here, I've updated PFsense from october 24 to dec 17, now Captive pooral is not working.

  • After upgrade from 25.10.2010 to snapshot 18.12.2010 my cp portal page doesn't show, excluded ip's are working as always

    Best reards,


  • Looks like this should be resolved not in the next snapshot to come out, but the one after that.

    Looking forward to testing this tomorrow.

  • Should be fixed on latest snapshots.
