Clearpass Guest - URL instead of IP address

I can't for the life of me figure out this simple question.  We have guest setup and working with no issues.  We would just like the URL to be the server name instead of IP address that is listed when they launch a browser (cert issues)

 

https://x.x.x.x/guest/company.php?cmd...  and we want https://servername/guest/company...

 

any help appreciated

You should definitely be using the FQDN. Are you using Aruba network gear?

yup, clearpass servers managing a hundred or so ap-105's

 

Odd thing is if we go to manage our clearpass server, fdqn is fine.

So what happens if you replace the IP with the FQDN?

 

Are the guest clients poinsted to a DNS server that can resolve that address?

So you should be able to just change the URL in your captive portal profile to reflect the FQDN.

Ah ok. Sorry for all the questions. Couldn't tell exactly what your question was.

 

Under Configuration > Authentication > L3 authentication, select the captive portal profile and then you should see the URL field.
