Is HTTPs traffic correctly rdirected in PANOS 4.0.8?

L3 Networker


We have an issue with captive portal not correctly redirecting https traffic. The https traffic is sometimes allowed without redirection to the captive portal, and sometimes dropped, without any logs, the only way to see the issue is to make paket capture.

The captive portal is configured in redirect mode.

Any idea please?

Verify that you have SSL-inspection/SSL-termination/SSL-decryption in place:

The last link is a bit old so I dunno if thats still valid.

I also recently saw a thread in this forum regarding captive portal but I cannot locate it currently.

I dont remember if it was something fixed with newer PANOS (like 4.1.3 or 4.1.4) or that the security rule needed to include the ip of the PAN itself in order to make captive portal happy.
