Mobility master network: How do I change the captive portal redirect IP?

  • 1.  Mobility master network: How do I change the captive portal redirect IP?

    Posted Jan 04, 2019 10:55 AM

    Hello, we are setting up a proof of concept with two Aruba 7010 WLC's, a couple of APs and mobility master. 

     

    I am working on getting a captive portal set up on our guest network. The browser window pops up now, but it is trying to go to the management IP address - which I don't want. That is a secured network the guest network cannot access. It's on a completely different firewall without a route that can even try to access it. 

     

    I saw this answered before by issuing the ip cp-redirect-address command, but that was for 6.x and we are running mobility master and 8.1. 

     

    I've already created the IPs on the guest VLAN on the two controllers, but I do not see where to change the captive portal to use those IP addresses. 

     

    Thanks in advance! I hope what I'm trying to accomplish makes sense.

    SSH into the MM.

    Type "show configuration node-hierarchy" to see the name or the full path to each controller.

    cd to either the full path or the name of the one controller

    Then, do this:

    config t

    ip cp-redirect-address <ip address of the controller on that guest VLAN>

    type "write mem"

     

    Do the same thing for the second controller.

     

    You can SSH into either controller and type "show ip cp-redirect-address" to ensure that your configuration was propagated.
