Captive Portal Broken after upgrade to 2.3 Release

  • Get the initial login/ auth page but when entering username + password tries to load "http://its_address:8002/index.php?zone=" 
    Browsers Just sit there and hang. and never get redirected to "success" page nor get Internet routed access.

    Have had the portal working for 2 years and has always survived updating the software through multiple versions until now :-)

    I read the Upgrade Guide.
    AM using simple local user accounts on PFS to authenticate.  Nothing fancy no Radius.

    We are running the captive portal off of the LAN interface with a specific tagged VLAN.

    Any obvious things I should do? And was this already covered in previous posts? I am still looking.



  • Do you use the internal login page or a custom page? If the latter is the case, check that all of the hidden form items are included on your custom page. We missed the PORTAL_ZONE input and experienced the same problems after the upgrade as you do.

  • Yep custom page..
    Pretty sure you are right! 
    Thanks for pointing me in the right direction. 

  • Yes that fixed it Thank You.

  • excuse me could you explain me this a bit more? I have the same problem
