My captive portal doesn't really show

  • so when i turn on captive portal (enable it) and then try to go to or or anything, it just hangs there.

    At first i thought it must be dns forwarder, but i checked and it's enabled.

    i can clearly access the web config panel without logging in again.

    i can get the portal page to come up if i try going to google by putting in "" in the browser.

    I can't ping anything until i log in.

    any help is greatly appreciated.


  • If your DHCP configuration doesn't set your pfsense box as a DNS server then captive portal won't work.
