Captive Portal in Transparent mode on WAN

  • Hi,

    I am looking at putting a captive portal in on the perimeter of a multi-vlan network.  The network has a Cisco ASA doing all the vlan routing (there are approximately 100 vlans).

    Would it be possible to put in a pfsense captive portal between the outside interface of our ASA and our internet gateway router.  The pfsense box would need 1 public IP for sure but would I be able to use do this as a bump-in-the-wire solution?


  • I don't see any problems if the vlan tag is removed by asa

  • Hi,

    Thanks for the reply.  How would I go about this configuration?  How do I configure the pfsense box to be transparent?


  • Haven't done by myself so i can't answer

    Captive Portal does not work in transparent mode (layer2 bridge), you have to setup pfsense as a gateway & use pfsense DNS forwarding for Captive Portal to work.
