PfSense 2.0: Captive portals hangs connecting to http://ipaddress:8000

  • Hi,

    I am playing with the captive portal, and have put in place a custom login script however I cannot see to get it to work.

    Insofar, after authentication the server shows a successful login, and I can see the session in the captive portal status page, however on the client it hangs on connecting to address http://ipaddress:8000 and after that times out I cannot connect any websites.
    Any ideas what I am doing wrong?

    My login script is as follows:

    <title>Company Name - Guest WiFi</title>


    Welcome Company Name
