Problem with Captive portal :

L0 Member


I'm using PA-500 with 5.0.11 OS.

I would like to get help for the captive portal, HTTPS traffic isn't being interrupted while HTTP is working fine and redirecting traffic for authorization.

Please help me.




Hi Phil

I forgot to ask You about decryption policy - do You use SSL decryption?




I realized that is only http traffic that I am seeing redirected to Captive portal.  Sorry for misleading you and the discussion thread.  That has prompted me to look further into it.

Agree with hyadavalli

You have to use SSL decryption.Without that page will not be loaded.(For unknown users allow only dns.)

Just to add to discussion, CP works by sending a 302 redirect when HTTP GET is received. HTTPS encrypts the GET message. Hence no redirect is triggered. This is why you need SSL decryption if you want to CP HTTPS traffic.
