External Captive Portals

Hello I have a question about external captive portals ..

My client is migrating the firewall to Palo Alto, but he wants to keep the captive portal that is already in use in another box. My question is: How can I make users be visible and identifiable in palo alto, sending the internet requests (websites) to another box? this can be done?

The idea is to generate Internet usage report for these users, but authentication would be with the other box, the palo alto only recognize what is accessed by users. It's like a bypass connection..

Sorry for my bad english :smileyhappy:

Thank you!

with panos 6 Paloalto can listen syslog for User-id function.

if that box can send syslog, try to configure that function.

But these users traffic should pass through paloalto.you should also configure that.

You can always use the API to inject the user-IP mapping in the Palo Alto

For more info, refer to User-ID Best Practices - PAN-OS 5.0, 6.0
