Problem configuring Guest-access Captive Portal

I am having a problem with using the captive portal for guest access.  I get the captive portal page, but clicking through, I do not get successfully redirected to my site.  Instead, it often just sits at the "External Welcome Page" (http://10.100.0.110/cgi-bin/login)  The URL doesn't look right though.  The Controller IP is the main IP used, not the proper IP on the vlan.  Why would the page not be using the IP on that VLAN?

 

It sort of seems to be working though, if I look at the user-table, but I still can't pass traffic.

 

 

Here is when I'm newly connected to the wifi:

 

(Aruba3600) #show user-table mac 00:16:cf:00:02:27

IP MAC Name Role Age(d:h:m) Auth VPN link AP name Roaming Essid/Bssid/Phy Profile Forward mode Type

Here is when I've clicked through and it's 'spinning':

 

(Aruba3600) #show user-table mac 00:16:cf:00:02:27

Thanks in advance,

Re: Problem configuring Guest-access Captive Portal

you need to use the ip cp-redirect parameter to make sure the correct ip address on the correct VLAN is used....http://community.arubanetworks.com/t5/Command-of-the-Day/COTD-ip-cp-redirect-address/td-p/236
