Captive Portal and DHCPv6



  • Is seems that Captive Portal and DHCPv6/RADVD have issues together:
    With the snapshot of pfSense 2.1-BETA1 (i386) built on Fri Dec 21 04:09:13 EST 2012:

    I reinstalled pfSense en configured from scratch.

    Configured Captive Portal on LAN and HTTPS no authentication.
    Configured DHCP for IPv4
    Configured DHCP for IPv6 and RADVD in Assisted mode.
    Configured GIF for IPv6 SixxS IPv6 tunnel

    I find that after reboot pfSense and workstation that's best to let the config load succesfully. Otherwise
    there are issues that Captive portal is not working. Cache somewhere?

    Workstation is Window 8 Enterprise.

    • Enabled CaptivePortal and DHCPv6/RADVD

    • Reboot pfSense and Workstation

    • Captive Portal worked but no IPv6

    • Login on Captive Portal (by the way: Portal Auth logs: logportalauth[60344]: Trying to modify DB returned error: near ",": syntax error)

    • computer cannot connect to ipv6.google.com. Becaus its has no IPv6

    System logs: System/Routing shows:
    Dec 22 14:53:38 radvd[43615]: sendmsg: Permission denied
    Dec 22 14:53:30 radvd[43615]: sendmsg: Permission denied
    Dec 22 14:53:12 radvd[43615]: sendmsg: Permission denied

    After Captive portal Disabled and DHCPv6/RADVD enabled:
    Reboot Computer and pfSense
    IPv6 works and computer can connect to ipv6.google.com

    System logs: System/Routing shows:
    Dec 22 14:54:49 radvd[43615]: resuming normal operation
    Dec 22 14:54:49 radvd[43615]: can't join ipv6-allrouters on re1
    Dec 22 14:54:49 radvd[43615]: attempting to reread config file

    Dec 22 14:53:38 radvd[43615]: sendmsg: Permission denied

    Am i soing something wrong or is this a bug?  ???



  • The Captive Portal does not support IPv6 as the underlying packet filter does not yet support all required IPv6 features.


  • Rebel Alliance Developer Netgate

    Captive Portal for IPv6 isn't going to work until 2.2
