Aruba Controller 7205 - Internal Captive Portal with email registration

Can you help me with Aruba Controller 7205 and internal captive portal? According to our documentation, there is option to use internal captive portal with email registration for guest SSID network.

 

Do we need any external tool or changed html code to do this, or controller can natively do this?

 

The bought licenses are AP, PEF and RFP.

There is no option for self-registration with the internal captive portal. You can register guest users with an admin/operator account on the controller, and the receipt can be sent via e-mail from the controller.

Are you looking to provide the email address as a Guest Login or use the email address to authentication the client (e.g against a Internal or External DB)?


Either way, Captive Portal authentication using the built-in Captive Portal is covered below.

The plan is to just collect the mail address from the guests (not need to validate the mail address) and than later use it for marketing purposes. When creating the guest SSID there is option to use captive portal with mail registration, but when configured in that way, no splash page/captive portal doesn't open, just connect to internet.

 

Do you have advice what to do?

Do you have an initial role that has the captive portal redirect configured? Like the guest-logon role. And you also need to make sure you have a L3 address on the controller for the guest VLAN to redirect the traffic to.

As what Dustin said, also make sure that your clients also have a valid and working DNS server. If the controller cannot intercept the DNS Reply to the client, the re-direct to the Captive Portal will not work.

Re: Aruba Controller 7205 - Internal Captive Portal with email registration

Craig and Dustin, thank you for the help. Eventually it begin to work normally for Android devices, and little bit slowly for IOS devices. We get splash page, enter the mail address and connect to Internet.

 

 At clilent list who are online, we also can see the clients mail address used for registration, but do we have saved on controller?

 

Because the idea of using email registration is to use collected emails for marketing, is there option to export file from controller with email addresses collected from email registration?
