External portal (clear pass) and radius

Aruba 7030. ArubaOS


I understand how this work (steps):

1. Guest connect to WLAN, and redirect on external web-portal.

2. Guest enter login-pass in portal web-page, press submit

3. After press submit - login and pass is transferred to Aruba Controller by URL (post-request).

4. Controller transfer login-pass from request to the radius.

5. Radius say - Succes or Failed.


I do not know what URL (for submit button in guest form) to write on login page in STEP 3.


I searched here, but all the answers are different.

Someone writes that the link is and someone like that, or and much more.

Which link is correct?


Re: External portal (clear pass) and radius

First off you are posting in the communtiy feedback section. Not the controller or security section of the forum.


I'm not a controller expert so it might have changed since the last time I used it.

Most users here use Clearpass as the external web server and it makes it pretty easy to use.

The "" is a place holder and can be used for testing, but it should be chaged to the controllers DNS name for production.I dont belive you need to add anything else on the name. You can check with one of the controller VRDs or ask in the right fourm.

Re: External portal (clear pass) and radius

Sorry, I confused forum's sections. I have simple html login form:

  <form method="POST" ACTION=""> 
    <input type="hidden" name="user" value="guest">
    <input type="hidden" name="password" value="guest">
    <input type="submit" name="Accept" value="authenticate">

URL in bold string correct? I have 404 error after press submit in this form :(
DNS is all ok - ping from client for "" - answer is controller IP.
