Captive Portal + GFI WebMonitor



  • Hi,

    I am a total newbie to pfSense and would like to use the the Captive portal with a webmonitoring server.

    I have installed pfsense 2.0.1 on a seperate box with two network cards and installed GFI on a Windows Server 2008 on another machine.

    I've got it all working apart from one problem. The captive protal does not give out the WPAD settings (which are 192.168.13.254:8080).
    If I put it into the LAN settings on the browser manually it works. If I type http://192.168.13.254/wpad.dat into the browsers 'use auto configuration script' this also works.
    I jus cannot get pfSense to give out the WPAD automatically.

    I've installed Squid (as mentioned in http://doc.pfsense.org/index.php/WPAD_Autoconfigure_for_Squid) but no success.

    i've uploaded the image of my network digram. Please can an expert assist?

    Thanks



  • You additionally have to put your wpad.dat on your Captive Portal Login Page as the first code. If someone opens a browser it asks for the wpad.dat file, witch can not be accessed because of the CP-Page. But if the wpad code is on yout CP-Login page it will be recognized as your wad.dat code.
