IAP External Portal

Trying to get an external captive portal to work (Instant AP 6.4.4.3-4.2.2.0_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

Re: IAP External Portal

What part is not working? The redirect? The auth?

Thank you for your quick response

 

The redirect is working fine but the authentication is not working.

I get no response from the VC

 

wlan external-captive-portal froehlich.or.at
 server froehlich.or.at
 port 443
 url "/"
 auth-text "Accept"
 https

Re: IAP External Portal

a working example was posted some time ago, a search for external captive portal should turn it up i hope.

Re: IAP External Portal

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?">

Re: IAP External Portal

can you share  little  more  about external  portals  actually i am also working on this  ...

 

Did  you  designed  your  external portal  or  its a third party  software  ?

Re: IAP External Portal

Hello Kashan,

 

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.

johannfroelich,

 

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.

Re: IAP External Portal

Hi Colin,

 

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.

 

Thank you Johnny
