Problem with captive portal redirection for https

L2 Linker
Hello there!
I have Captive Portal configured in a firewall. Unknown users are redirected when attempting an HTTP site, but those users are not redirected to the Captive Portal page when attempting to reach an HTTPS/SSL site.

The Captive Portal policy has been configured properly with options with 'service-http' and 'service-https', but browsing to an HTTPS site times out / block instead of getting redirected to the Captive Portal page.

Any suggestions?
Thanks and regards.

This same issue was addressed not too long ago in this thread:


You need this command:


# set deviceconfig setting ssl-decrypt url-proxy yes
