I have a client that would like to roam from location to location and not have to reauthenticate with the captive portal. Unfotunately, not all my locations terminate to the same WLAN controller and therefore even though they are within the User Idle Timeout period, when they connect to the guest SSID, it presents them with the captive portal page. I'm hoping there might be a way where there iOS device remembers their credentials and seemlessly in the background pass those credentials through without having the captive portal page come up. I guess what the real question is, can there be other method of a guest client authenticating with Internal DB user credentials without it being via the captive portal.

Can the controller be configured to accept local user login credentials without a captive portal? If I can get a guest be prompted to loging with a captive portal I would play around with that and see if I can get to the ultimate goal.

The only way would be using 802.1x, or a WPA2-PSK network. Your challenge with those is that you have to give guest users instructions. For most, it is a reasonable expectation if they encounter a new site that they be required to login to the Captive Portal..
