We have 2 node CPPM cluster in the US. Publisher near the west coast and Subscriber near the east coast. We want to set up the system in such a way that we can run a captive portal on each appliance so that we can keep the user traffic local to the area. Can you run a captive portal on a Subscriber, I didn't think you could? We don't want users based in New York have to authenticate to the appliance in California, and vice versa, if you get the idea?

Yes, you can use the web logins/registration pages of CPPM Guest on any appliance in the cluster. You need to configure your access devices (wireless controllers, switches, etc.) to point to the appropriate instance of CPPM.
However, keep in mind, if you use the registration features, although your clients will hit a web page on the subscriber, the actual process of creating the user/device is done on the publisher.

You can host the portal on either the PUB or the SUB. The account creation [writing to the DB] always happens on the PUB and the account info then being sync to the SUB, the SUB would then authN the user locally.
