Captive portal login failure for usernames with syntax of (Firstname.lastname)

  • I setup captive portal and am having a minor issue, I got it working fine and customized the authentication page (NOT THE PROBLEM) works great except one thing. If the username is in the syntax "firstname.lastname" the login fails and i see this in the Logs

    "logportalauth[64800]: Zone: captive_portal - FAILURE: firstname.lastname, 30:d6:c9:xx:xx:xx,"

    however if i create another user with a username such as "test" or "bill" it works fine. Any ideas?

  • Local user auth or RADIUS?

  • Local auth for now.
