  • Hi there.

    Things are missing in your question.
    Did you add a user to the User manager ?
    The portal service is activated and setup (you selected the right interface for the portal, right setup ?) ?

    Are you using https sites when surfing through the portal without being authenticated first (try http://www.google.com  NOT https://www.goolge.com) ?
    When you 'browse' without being authenticated, do you actually surf on the net - or not ?

    Yes, this is a huge bug. Using OLD versions isn't never a good idea.
    And … actually, it had a nasty bug in the portal code that had to be patched ..... You did that ?
    Anyway. Please, upgrade.

    edit: lol http://forum.pfsense.org/index.php/topic,63157.0.html the solution was already there a while ago.
    This is important:
    @wallabybob:

    Which build of pfSense are you using?

    Where are you browsing to? There are known issues in Captive portal with browsing to https pages.

    What does it do?



  • Maybe you are using external DNS, which you should add to "Allowed IP addresses" in Captive settings?
    Try browsing any IP address instead of hostname - 1.1.1.1 for example.
