Clearpass Guest and Wildcard certificates

Hi there

 

I was wondering someone would be able to shed some light or if they've encountered a similar problem and how they got around it. We've recently deployed Clearpass Guest using a wildcard certificate so users do not get a certificate error when they get redirected to the captive portal.

We've setup self-registration for the guests however after sponsor approval and when the guest logs in they would be redirected to the last web page they attempted to access, during this redirect a certificate error for https://7.7.7.7 will pop up, which is the virtual server IP of the controller. Is there an option somewhere to not do this or a solution to prevent it popping up for the guest users.

Re: Clearpass Guest and Wildcard certificates

Is this wildcard cert installed in ClearPass or on the IAP VC?

Hi Cappalli

 

The wildcard certificate is installed on the clearpass appliance

Re: Clearpass Guest and Wildcard certificates

Do you also have a publicly signed certificate installed on the IAP VC?

The WLC doesn't have a public signed certificate, i'm guessing that would be the requirement?

Alas, the link seems to lead to a dead end (page not found)

It is just a formatting thing - line break. Please copy and paste the link below into a browser tab or it works by clicking on - if no line break:
