Captive loop on https redirect
Hi to all,
I'm testing an installation of pfsense (pfSense-2.0.1-RELEASE-amd64.iso.gz) on a pc with 2 nic (internet/lan, wireless) for the activation of captive portal service. Now all things working fine with http, but when I active https protocol (I follow the instruction of http://blog.stefcho.eu/?p=814) the client after has acquired the certificate, can't redirect to login page (with explorer and chrome), with error TOO_MANY_REDIRECTS. In the address bar the url is repeated many times (https:pfsense.domain.lan:8001/index.php?rediurl=http%3A%2F%2Fpfsense.domain.lan%3A8001%2Findex.php%3Frediurl%3Dhttp….).
many thanks to all
Did you do as exactly as the guide say mostly the part "DNS Record
Go to Services > DNS Forwarder"…
yes, the CN is set to host.domain. The dns resolve correctly the query, also from ping is correct. On client I can see the intermediate certificate (the network should be ok). In the url I can see that the rediurl point to http and not to https, is correct?
Try disabling MAC filtering in Captive portal settings. Worked for me. Everytime I logged in from wireless repeater I would loop, main wireless access point worked fine. MAC from repeater evidently broke the MAC to IP relationship and triggered loop. Disabling MAC filtering stops this behavior for me.
Many thanks for your help, but the problem is still persist. Now I think to refresh the installation with a new one, and retry the procedure step by step.
