Captive portal on multiple interfaces



  • Is it possible to run captive portal on multiple interfaces? We have a wired and a wireless network both running on seprate interfaces. We are running  1.2-BETA-1-TESTING-SNAPSHOT-07-01-2007 of pfsense

    Thanks



  • Not currently.



  • If you can use two pfsense … or one pfsense AND on router ...

    one box for route LAN and WLAN to "WAN" ... so, 3 ip ranges.
    At this "WAN", you connect in the same ip range, pfsense with only two interfaces  ... the really WAN and the LAN ...

    WLAN------>|BOX| ---> wan ---> pfsense with CP ---> internet ...
    LAN  ------->|BOX|

    This is similar to how we do it as well.  We have 2  cisco routers running glbp+policy routing+ip sla before the clients hit the portal. Glbp+policy routing+ip sla allows us to run multiple pfsense portals in active/active mode while allowing for outbound load balancing & failover. If we need to add another subnet, we can either do a router on a stick or  place a router behind the policy routers.

    It would be neat to have the ability to serve up captive portal on multiple interfaces and/or be able to serve up different portal content based on originating network though

    see this topic for how to set that up
