CP on wireless network



  • i got this network wan–--> pfsense--->ap -------clients with ubnt ns2 (as a router) can i set the captive portal for the clients to log in or do i have to put it in as bridges?



  • Captive Portal in pfSense 2.0 is enabled/disabled on individual interfaces. If your AP is a pfSense interface you can enable CP on that interface. (I use CP this way.) If your AP is external to pfSense then you can enable CP on the interface connecting to the AP.

    If you have an external AP do you want to have different firewall rules for WiFi devices and wired devices? If so, its probably most convenient for them to have separate interface on pfSense.
