Null URL redirect with captive portal


I have a wireless AAA profile that uses 802.1x and then places the user into a captive portal. Works beautifully. 


I'm attempting to do the same on the wired ports of a RAP by reusing the wireless AAA profile on the wired ports. The machine successfully completes 802.1x on the wired side and is placed into the captive portal role. When a browser is opened the controller captures the http request, but the controller is responding with a null url for the CP login. Thus, the client can never authenticate.

Connection to host lost.



Has anyone seen this before or have any suggestions?


The controller has a wildcard cert for CP login, which works fine on the wireless side.
