Captive Portal with LDAP
i need to set up a captive portal with user authentication. Because of the given password hashes (PBKDF2 - SHA256 with salt), I have to use an openLDAP server for authentication and cannot use RADIUS.
I have set up the openLDAP and also the pfsense gateway and when i go to diagnostics->authentication I can login with the username and password retrieved from the LDAP. But when I want to login into the captive portal the login process fails every time I try it. What is the problem here? Is there any possibility to use the the LDAP for the Captive Portal?
Thanks in advance
That isn't currently possible. Captive Portal's settings are not tied to the User Manager yet, but they should be in pfSense 2.2.
Damn! I was hoping to test implementing this today. :-( This would be fantastic and would eliminate the need for Radius!
Would I be able to setup 2 servers? 2 different Microsoft Domain Controllers? and point to each one? I would like this for redundancy. Possible?
If one ldap server was not available would it look to the other or would configuring 2 servers with the same users cause problems?
What about using the freeradius2 package and then using the ldap option within that package?
