Kindle e-reader with Captive Portal

L1 Bithead

Hi All

I was wondering if anyone has managed to get a Kindle e-reader (E Ink not Kindle Fire) to work with a PA Captive Portal.

We have had a couple of users who have been able to connect to the WiFi however the logon page will never show on the browser.

Hi Tom,

Kindle e-reader doesn't seem to support browsing on non standard ports and that's required for captive portal.

The redirect will look like this

HTTP/1.0 302 Moved


Content-Length: 0

Pragma: no-cache

Cache-Control: no-cache

Either redirect or you'll need to import a certificate into the Kindle (if using transparent) and that is also not an option apparently for the e-reader. Certs can't be imported.
