Redirection issue through clearpass

Hey everyone!


So im troubleshooting why my guest SSID will not automatically redirect when it is selected through the wifi options by the user, i have replicated the issue.


I try to force a redirect a by typing a website, i use google.com.  This error pops up



when i try to force a redirect using the IP address, the browser redirects correctly my landing page



My 2 questions are:

1. How do i enable clearpass to force a redirect to a landing page?

2. Whats the deal with google.com throwing me that error while does not?

Re: Redirection issue through clearpass

This is expected behavior. HTTPS is working properly and correctly detecting a 'man-in-the-middle' attack.


You cannot redirect guest traffic on google.com. Google uses HSTS and is HTTPS only, which results in that you cannot redirect that traffic.
