Trying to get an external captive portal to work (Instant AP 220.127.116.11-18.104.22.168_53034).
Tried to configure it like in https://arubapedia.arubanetworks.com/afp/index.php/External_Captive_Portal
Also tried to use the url https://securelogin.arubanetworks.com/cgi-bin/login
I would appreciate a working example of an external splash page with authentication text.
Thank you for your help

Thank you for your quick response
The redirect is working fine but the authentication is not working.
I get no response from the VC

I was lucky finding the answer. I was missing a question mark at the end of my post command.
So this works:
<form method=POST action="http://securelogin.arubanetworks.com/cgi-bin/login?">

the post comand is included in an external website done by an app designer. We are designing a guest wifi for chain of fitness gyms. normally I would like to use clearpass for this scenario, but in this case open authentication which neither Instant Aps nor clearpass can use was the option or a external captive portal hosted by the app designer was the option.
If anyone ever achieved an open authentication with clearpass I would like to hear about it.

When you say "Open Authentication", what do you mean? ClearPass does support Open (just click accept), username and password or just a single passcode for authentication methods.

In this case I would require OAuth (like in https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/OAuth).
I know that clearpass can use SAML as SSO source. But this interface is not provided by this app designer.
