Devices bypassing captive-portal



  • Greetings,

    I have captive-portal configured on my LAN with no authentication other than a button click. Some devices (mostly smartphones) are given an IP address by DHCP without going through the captive-portal authentication process. I'm running a default install of pfSense 2.1.1-RELEASE-pfSense (amd64).

    How would I go about trouble-shooting the reason why this is happening? Is this a known bug? If so, is there an solution I can implement until it is fixed in future releases.

    Thank you,

    Scott

    Huh? Whut?  :o ???

    You know, there cannot be any CP authentication (not even a click-thru) without ALL the devices getting an IP first… This is NOT a bug.

    There was actually a CP bug in 2.1.1 that will be fixed in 2.1.2 (coming hopefully today)

    https://github.com/pfsense/pfsense/commit/bde74857a876ef87795f1cd09e12c33d160ce175

    But that wouldn't necessarily have caused issues for everyone.
