Captive Portal Setup

I am finally conceeding to defeat.... 

I followed the instructions set in here (Aruba OS 6.2) and still have been unable to get my captive portal to work...


I have attempted the Guest-logon role, the Guest role, a combination of those two minus the v6, and have setup my own customized captive portal. 

From what I have read online, if there is a DNS issue I will know by going to, and it is supposed to work.... 


I have now basically done two setups for the CP -- one on my own, and one following the instructions as best I could for what I need....


From what I can tell, it should have worked....

Does anyone have any suggestions? I'm sure it will be something simply stupid on my part but I have not been able to figure out what it may be.... I have attached snippets of the code in hope that someone might see something....


Anyone have any suggestions?


Thank you!!!!!!

Do you have an IP address on the controller for the user subnet?

Captive portal needs a layer 3 interface in the subnet to perform the
