Captive portal, redirecting page
Hi there, i have a class C network with static IP's divided into several subnets which are connected through leased lines..
All these subnets end into the LAN side of Pfsense and all static routes are filled in the appropriate section so all devices are visible and have access to the internet. BUT… when i enable captive portal only computers that are physically connected to LAN can see the login page. All the others behind the routers cannot see this page even that on the address bar they are looking for the right redirect page...
WHY this happens? If i disable captive portal ALL computers have access to WAN...
I am running 1.2 BETA 1 (30/4/2007)
Any help is WELCOME
Disable MAC auth, as all devices from behind a router will all have the router MAC address in the TCP header. (Layer 3 networking…)
make sure the clients DHCP server has pfsense ip as the DNS server.
in the CP config I also add a dns override for the hostname of the pfsense box as configured in the cp config page, set to the lan address of the pfsense box.
also, but not likely as it works without CP:
be sure the router has only one default route, which is the pfsense lan address
make sure pfsense has a route that is the routers lan address for the client network behind the router
I have this working in 2 production networks.
