How to bypass my captive portal.

Hello,

Does anyone know an easy way to have certain clients bypass my captive portal? I don't want these clients to have to enter a username and password..I want them to authenticate automatically.

Are you using ClearPass or the built in controller captive portal?

You can either use mac authentication on that SSID (valid mac addresses are assigned a role that does not force captive portal login) or use user derived rules that are based on mac addresses that assign a similar role.    The first option is more scalable, but either one depends on the mac address of the device to be known in order to assign an alternate role to bypass the captive portal page.

Internal captive portal.

I would only be doing this for a handfull of devices. I would be using the controller captive portal, no clearpass implementation here.

In AAA profile enable mac authentication with internal DB as auth source.

In internal DB add the usres mac as user name and password. There you can assign role for that user also.

I normally just put in a user derivation rule for that mac and put them into the authenticated guest role.

This is helpful for things like digital signage or display tablets in foyers etc.
