We have constant problems with iOS devices trying to gain internet access via our portal. I know it's related to OCSP, in some form or fashion, because when I disable OCSP in the client web browser - SHAZAM!...I have internet access. Without disabling OCSP, the browser will often time out trying to ultimately gain internet connectivity.
I've opend a case with TAC and they've made changes to our system using this KB article as a guide: https://arubanetworkskb.secure.force.com/pkb/articles/HowTo/R-1336 but unfortunately this has not solved our problem.
I'm wondering if it's far more simple; I'm wondering if it's because we're using a 3rd party certificate issued by Network Solutions and we should just buy a cert from either Thawte or Verisign which, by default, are MUCH much more trusted by client browsers??? I think this is why disabling OCSP works because you're bascially telling the client browser to ignore the cert - just accept it - don't bother trying to verify whether it's legit or not.
Do other people have this same issue? Who do you buy your certs from?
Solved! Go to Solution.

Here's an example for the built-in controller certificate (securelogin.arubanetworks.com) (screenshots are from AOS 6.4)
ip domain lookup
ip domain-name <your-domain>
ip name-server <your-dns-server>
netdestination GEOTRUST-OCSP name ocsp.geotrust.com !
