    In an IAP guest setup there is an option for an external splash page using "authentication text" to be returned.  What I am looking for is how to code that into a web page.  I have some basic HTML/CSS coding skills but I'm not making the connection with what the IAP is expecting in terms of "auth text" and how the web server is intended to provide it when clicking a button.

    If you have access to Arubapedia (for Partners and Aruba employees), you could check this page with a section on the Authentication Text and an example.

    Note that the Authentication text only works on HTTP sites, as the HTML on the server is checked for the authentication text when the client retrieves it. It may be hard to find a non-HTTPS web service these days... and the user's browser may complain about an unencrypted connection. With HTTPS the AP cannot detect the HTML (as it is encrypted), so that is incompatible with Authentication Text. Don't hear this feature is used a lot, which may be because HTTP starts to slowly disappear.

    Hi Tyler,
    If you have HTML/CSS coding skills. Better use Radius Server like ClearPass which support Captive portal customization
