    Hey everyone!

     

    So im troubleshooting why my guest SSID will not automatically redirect when it is selected through the wifi options by the user, i have replicated the issue.

     

    I try to force a redirect a by typing a website, i use google.com.  This error pops up

    NET::ERR_CERT_AUTHORITY_INVALID

     

    when i try to force a redirect using the IP address 1.1.1.1, the browser redirects correctly my landing page

     

     

    My 2 questions are:

    1. How do i enable clearpass to force a redirect to a landing page?

    2. Whats the deal with google.com throwing me that error while 1.1.1.1 does not?

    This is expected behavior. HTTPS is working properly and correctly detecting a 'man-in-the-middle' attack.

     

    You cannot redirect guest traffic on google.com. Google uses HSTS and is HTTPS only, which results in that you cannot redirect that traffic.
