how to remove the Controller IP in the captive portal address bar without using secured connection?

Hi,

 

We are mcurrently having a problem in installation in our site.

When a laptop connects to the wireless network and the captive portal comes up it displays the controller's IP address which is not safe for a public network.

 

What do we need to do to solve this issue without using HTTPS:// ? 

When we use the https:// option this problem shows up

not all clients in the site are techy, so if someone sees this problem appearing they are complaining of a network problem.

 

As per the end user they are not going to purchase any certificate for this wireless network.

 

BR,

Carlo

Solution:

 

 - Make sure the controller has an ip address on the guest VLAN

- Change it so that the controller redirects to that ip address, instead:

 

config t

ip cp-redirect-address <ip address of controller on guest vlan>

Hi Colin,

Could we use an internal DNS instead of an ip in the guest vlan? How could we do it?

Re: how to remove the Controller IP in the captive portal address bar without using secured connecti

By default, the "securelogin.arubanetworks.com" will automatically resolve to the captive portal ip address.  Here is how it works:

 

- The default captive portal certificate is "securelogin.arubanetworks.com"

- Any user that opens a captive portal will ask for "securelogin.arubanetworks.com" and the controller will intercept the DNS query and return the ip address of the captive portal.

- by default, the ip address of the captive portal is the controller's management ip address.  Optionally, you can change that to any ip address on a VLAN on the controller by using the ip cp-redirect-address.

- Using the default procedure, no ip address should appear in the browser's address bar...
