creating a webpage for use with IAP External - Authentication Text

Hello,

Does anyone know what needs to be on a very simple web page that I can point an Instant AP 105 towards when using External - Authentication Text.

I read that the AP is looking for a string in the response but dont know what to do to code the webpage.

 

I already have an email capture field, a generic disclaimer and a Submit button.

What should I make the submit button do to return the secret string back to the IAP ?

 

Many thanks in advance

Chris

When you would like to use "Auth text" option you just have to provide the same string as configured - somewhere at your Web Page where the user has been authenticated.

Yes, understood. The trouble is I don't know what to code on the website, is it a POST response, after the user clicks submit ?

 

The help link refer to using External Auth test after hitting an external Radius or Captive portal website.

We are not actually planning doing any authentication, just making sure guest visitors read the disclaimer and click 'Accept', with the only benefit to us being getting stats on how many guests used the wireless.
