Can this be setup? We currently use Amigopod (with AP125's) and configure all settings via the controller its pointing back to. DHCP, login page, welcome page, firewall rules, etc..all config'd on the master controller. We add the NAS device on Amigopod and all works well. But with the IAP's, its a virtual controller. Can we mimic same setup?

ok. I have set it up on the IAP Virtual Controller. for client IP Assignment, I chose 'Virtual Controller Assign' . We do not want the Guest users getting an internal IP. The clients are getting a 172.16 address, where is it getting that from? also, we use the Aruba controllers for all captive portal options. Do I have to configure Amigopod for Captive Portal?

select port 80. You must also enable dynamic radius proxy under the advanced settings tab. The dynamic radius proxy ensures that all RADIUS traffic is sourced from the virtual controller IP address and not from the individual IP addresses of each Instant access point.
I know you will not be comfortable using port 80 and want to use 443, but this will cause an error. So the work around for this is to goto
Amigopod and on Administrator > Network Setup > Login Access page,select the Require HTTPS for guest access checkbox. With this setting enabling all attempts to access a guest Web Login or Self Registration page will automatically be directed to HTTPS if not already using this protocol.

Still not redirecting to the Amigopod welcome page. Might be an issue with DNS. We use public DNS for guests, cant ping it. I have the firewall temporaily set to unrestricted so I dont think ICMP would be blocked at this point.

That might be an issue. To remove DNS from the picture, in the IP or Hostname field of the external splash page settings use the IP of the amigopod server instead of FQDN. To make sure you can ping amigopod, the pre-auth role should allow icmp.

In the /URL field don't enter the hostname. For instance if the login page on the Aimogpod is http://10.x.x.10/Aruba_Login.php (you will give the entire URL on the controller's CP profile), in the instant setting the IP/hostname field should have the IP and the /URL field will have /Aruba_Login.php (don't give the hostname or ip again). Now if you combine the Port (80), IP (10.x.x.10), and URL (/Aruba_Login.php) fields on the instant you will get http://10.x.x.10/Aruba_Login.php.
