Captive portal for devuces behind router



  • Hi everybody

    I have the following configuration

    wan ( 200.xx.xx.xx ) < -> pfsense ( lan 10.0.0.1 ) < -> router ( 192.168.1.x )

    Obviously the captive portal login page is displayed only to the first device connected through the router and other devices browse after that.
    There is a way for show the captive portal to all connected devices through the router and not just the first device connected,  i already tried by disabling the mac filtering but still does not work properly

    A classic one.
    This kind of configuration pops up when people 'think' they understood about 'networking'.

    It should be :
    wan ( 200.xx.xx.xx ) < -> pfsense ( lan 192.168.1.1 ) < -> router ( 192.168.1.2 )
    Note : KEEP it simple : keep the pfSense default IP. Avtivate DNS and DHCP serveur on pfSense (is is activated by default).
    Change : the IP of you AP to 192.168.1.2 (shut down DHCP server if it has anny - declare its gateway and DNS 192.168.1.1)
    Done.

    PS : better yet : Use LAN (on pfSEnse) for your private secured connection - add a third network card (will be called OPT - IP 192.168.2.1) and use that for your portal access (add a switch and your AP's to the switch - AP's will have IP's like 192.168.2.2, 192.168.2.3, etc).
