RAP2 - google.com redirects to rapconsole

My RAP2 is provisioned and working correctly except for the fact that when I try and visit google.com, it redirects to the rapconsole.arubanetworks.com. This occurs in all browsers. Subdomains of google (images.google.com) all work correctly.

Checked my proxy settings and everything is correct.

 

Anyone else seeing this?

Is that that when you connect to it wired or wirelessly?  Do you get an ip address from your datacenter?

 

Clear your DNS cache by doing this on the commandline of your Windows computer:

 

ipconfig /flushdns

I am connected wirelessly and I do have a corporate address. Everything seems to be working properly, including split-tunnel. I have cleared the DNS cache multiple times.

Do you get this with all your clients, or a single client? Can you do an nslookup from the client to see if the dns server is giving out that address?

No one else has reported the problem. I provisioned all of the RAP's via ZeroTouch from this computer though.

 

The nslookup returned the correct Google IP's from our corporate DNS server.

Re: RAP2 - google.com redirects to rapconsole

browsers do dns caching, to acclerate the fetching of web pages.

 

Can you please clear your browser cache and see if it works ?
