IAP + Redirect URL w/o external authentication

Hello,

 

I'd like to have a guest portal simply redirect to a predetermined external website.  So once the clients connect to the open AP, if they try go to www.purple.com for instance, they get redirected to www.red.com ... is this possible with the IAP or are we forced to use external authentication.  If external authentication is required, the simpilest would be to use Auth Text but it is unclear how we'd get that text back to the IAP to allow data to flow.  Any examples?  Everything I've found on here mentions it but have not yet found a good, working example.

 

Thanks

Hello Victor,

 

Yes, I have tried that already and it does work, however there is a very long pause while it times out (resulting in a delay of actually getting redirected).  If there was a way to tune the timeout to like 1 second, it may work better but as-is, it appears something is broke for a while until things timeout and it redirects.

 

Thanks
