I am using the internal captive portal provided by the iap (no controller here only virtual one) at the moment. I works ok but the lack of customization made me want to have an external one.
I noticed that the iap contact google ip through 126.96.36.199/19 or 188.8.131.52/16
exemple or reached page : 184.108.40.206/generate_204
Is it possible to configure the IAP so that it goes to the external http page directly.
I don't know where the problem comes from but I can only display html page with the captive portal, any php cause the page to be blank or even unreachable.
Is it at all possible to use php? Or do I have to use html and a radius server on the side? I wanted to use pfsense captive portal, but since I can't manage to display a single php page on an completely different host I wonder if it is even possible.
Is there anywhere in the doc an explicit answer to what the html page should return to the iap and how?
Thanks for the reading.

What kind of captive portal experience are you trying to provide? Is it a simple "Click to agree to terms and conditions and then get online" or something more complex such as register for a free username and password and then login with it?

I would like something pretty simple with therms and conditions with a voucher or login/password.
I don't mind putting up a radius server on the side for authentication.
What the pfsense captive portal offers would be great.
We don't use the guest portal very often, maybe 3-5 times a week. But it still bothers me to have a very minimalistic designed page.

Thansk, It helps a little.
I manage to see the page but It still don't work after validation of the form.
I have this error at the http://securelogin.arubanetworks.com/cgi-bin/login url.
<html><pre>Error in invocation. Error string - Internal error 001, please contact support</pre></html>
I tried changing the url by the VIP of the iaps but it didn't work. I also added the master ip in the host to securelogin.arubanetworks.com
I also changed the hidden input values from the value in the url like that :
But with no success yet.
My bad... I didn't configure enough access rule for it to work, but the basic html page v8 in the thread http://community.arubanetworks.com/t5/Aruba-Instan

Your captive portal should look like this:
wlan external-captive-portal CPPM_GUEST-CP-PROFILE
