Redirecting all user port 80 traffic to local web server

Hi,

 

I want to create an open ssid which guests should connect automatically. We have a server with information pages for guests. I want to redirect all port 80 traffic to our web server ip. Is it possible with 7030 controller v8.3?

 

Regards,

If you setup a Captive Portal, that is exactly what you are doing.  You then have the option within the Captive Portal authentication profile to have the user just click on accept, enter username and password and then be redirected to another web page.

 

Beyond just having the user traffic go to a local web server, how do you want the client to function after the web page is observed?

 

EDIT:  This is considered an "external captive portal".  You would change the "Logon Page" parameter from "/auth/index.html" to "http://whateverpageyouwant.com"

Users should not login and they should not browse any other web site. This will be a single purpose SSID. So just for this should external CP is OK?

Make sure the captive portal settings are correct



Make captiveportal settings in L3 authentication settings and make sure they are applied as initial-role.



In addition, please make sure that user information (internal or external) is registered in the authentication server.



Finally, verify that the user's role (authenticated) changes after Web authentication is complete

Yes. You want the connected users to reach your web server to access information, right? That web server is not on the controller itself, so an external portal is the way to go. 

 

Since you are not wanting users to login, simply do not include the login function on your external website, and users will be kept in that pre-authenticated role where all they can access is your informational website. Any web requests that they send for other sites will be redirected back to your information website.
