External Captive portal with NO radius support

Hi All, 


I have to integrate an IAP deployment with a product called Social-Fi that the customer has purchased. I am still waiting on the details of this product, but it's basically facebook authenticated, and usually it's provided as a wireless router for coffee shops and the like. In this case it's a much larger business with 30+ IAPs that has opted to go with a non-CP product.


I have a suspicion it will NOT support radius to feedback the authentication result to the virtual controller. I am wondering what the options are to support products like this. One option is obviously to route all traffic through the captive portal, which may well be a small appliance. 


Any other options? Is there anyway to get an auth result via HTTP for example?

Update: I can see an option for 'auth-text' in the manual. Is this simply scraping the html on the page?
