Captive portal for wi-fi guest users

Hello all!

How must I configure the PA so that the guest users using wi-fi are redirected to the Captive Portal when accessing https without the need to install certs on the guest devices? Right now it's working for http sites, but not for https, in this case those users don't go though Captive Portal.

Any suggestions? Thanks!

@Bittereinder,

The only solution you'll have is either assigning a trusted certificate to the Captive Portal via an SSL/TLS service profile or you'll need to simply have the guest users bypass the certificate warnings. The best solution would be getting a trusted certificate from an external CA and configuring the Captive Portal to utilize that.
