Redirect back to CPPM after "guest login"



I am trying to setup a captive portal with only an Accept Terms and Cond button, with Aruba controller and Clearpass 6.6

So far it works to connect to the SSID, i get redirected to the captive portal, I can check the "I accept", but when I press Log In i get redirected to the Clearpass tips page and if I try to browse to another page I get redirected back to the logon screen.

When I look in the controller I still have the guest-logon role and not the guest role.

I have tried to force it to redirect to after login but that doesn't happen ether. 


The Default role and Default Guest Role is set to guest.


Note: I have set everything to do http, since this is a lab and I am not able to get a certificate. Not sure if this has any impact.


Do anyone have an idea what could be wrong?


Edit: Some show commands that might help

Edit2: I am able to ping internet, but when I try to browse I just get back to the portal. My best guess is that it is because I am not getting the right role after login but I cant figure out why.

Re: Redirect back to CPPM after "guest login"

Problem solved. Sometimes it's the simplest things.

The User Logon checkbox wasn't checked in the controller.
