I have a scenario whereby we have a publicly issued wildcard certificate for our organisation and I'm wanting to use this in conjunction with Captive Portal on the PA-500. I've set all policies up and configured Captive Portal to redirect to a Loopback interface on the firewall (through the use of a DNS name which resolves to the IP of the loopback).
This wildcard certificate is mainly to allow BYOD devices to connect via the captive portal without certificate errors.
- Is this possible though because I read that the Captive Portal 'Redirect' field needs to match EXACTLY what is configured as the CN in the certificate.
- The wildcard certificate CN is *.blahblah.com and not the FQDN...
I can't edit the certificates attributes (e.g. hostname/SAN fields) because its a public certificate.
Thanks in advance.
Great news. Glad to know someone else is trying to achieve the same as myself. I seem to have it working with business machines but not BYOD devices.
Have you experienced any issues with iPad/Android devices and Captive Portal redirection?
Can't seem to browse to the portal page from those devices.
