Captive Portal showing different IP address from routed subnet



  • If I access a site via the captive portal from a directly connected IP to the LAN, the IP returned in the URL is correct (in my case, source IP is 10.123.123.168 and URL returned is 10.123.123.1:8000).  If I attempt to connect to a site from an IP that is routed through another router that hits the Captive Portal, the IP returned is NOT the IP of the captive portal - but an IP associated with the site attempting to contact (source IP is 10.123.125.103 and URL returned is 72.2.226.58:8000 {attempting to hit "www.carters.com").  All clients are told to use the pfSense as their DNS server and I do get the Captive Portal - but it appears to cause some issues with redirecting on those clients not on the same LAN as the pfSense box.  Any clues as to why it is doing this?



  • I solved my own problem by using the HTTPS name method mentioned in this post:
