CP + transparent squid = delay

  • Hello!

    I had captive portal working flawlessly, but then I decided to add Squid as transparent proxy. Now there is a problem.

    My portal page is very simple with just a "Continue" button. There is no authentication and no username/password dialog. When new user gets captured to the portal page and clicks "Continue" immediately, they aren't forwarded to another page but remain on the portal page. If, however, they wait 10-20 seconds before clicking "Continue", they are forwarded successfully. If I uncheck "transparent proxy" setting in Squid, the behaviour returns to normal. What can I do to get rid of this delay while keeping the transparent proxy?
