kindly help us following, once we conenct to SSID how browser automatically open and redirect to captive portal.








Re: Browser Need to Open /Start Automatically and Automatically Should Redirect Captive Portal

You say nothing of AOS version or internal/external Captive Portal, but I'll just assume pre AOS8 and internal Portal.


Check Monitoring -> Clients. Verify which ROLE the client lands in. It should be something like guest-logon. This ROLE has the required ACL's to do the redirect.


There should be plenty guides of how to get this done tho..




Steps to get it done

* Create a Captive Portal Profile (Authentication -> L3)

* Now I suggest creating a new a pre-auth ROLE (Configuration > Security > Access Control > User Roles) that is exactly like the guest-logon role, but change the Captive Portal setting to point to the new Captive Portal you created

* Create a new AAA profile (or adjust the one you already use) and update with initial role = your-new-guest-role

* Update the VAP profile to use the (new?) AAA profile

Apply and Save
