Captive portal with ipsec setup



  • Hello All,

    pfSense2.0.1-RELEASE
    multiwan  failover, load balancing
    squid
    squidGuard
    lightsquid

    We have two pfSense machines at two different locations with one ipsec vpn running between the two.This works fine for 3 years.

    Problem:
    When I enable the captive portal on either of the two machines,I can only ping the pfSense at the remote location  and nothing beyond the pfSense machines ip address.

    I did do searching here and oddly enough could not find what the config is to make this work is.

    Thank You,
    Barry

    You need to add the remote IPsec subnet(s) to the "Allowed IP addresses" list in the captive portal configuration.



  • jimp,

    Thank You..! I will give this a try in the morning when no one is here.
    Makes perfect sense. It goes without saying I have never set up captive portal,period.

    Take Care,
    Barry
