Configure Captive Portal--URL Filtering

Running a PA-820 

Software Version8.1.10

 

I run a bandwidth usage report that shows ip addresses using bandwidth, but no domain username.  How can I get the non-Domain devices such as byod to authenticate to the network before gaining network access?  My goal is to be able to run a report and see which devices and which credentials are using bandwidth.

 

Also, I do not decrypt ssl.  How can I view a URL report for users that are going to amazon.com?  I didnt' get any hits on my report, until i added a URL Filtering rule for the Shopping category to Alert..  Any thoughts?

 

Thanks

Do captive portal only for unknown users

You can set up captive portal so unknown users are required to login before they're able to get anywhere

 

To get URL information, you need to have a URL filtering profile in the rule, else URL lookups will be skipped

Thanks.  Is there a setting that exclude devices such as domain joined computers, where the credentials are already known?  I don't want computers that are already authenticated to get challenged.

Thank you.  We will try this out.

thank you.  This appears to be working with only capturing unknown users with captive portal.
