I am running Captive portal successfully with HTML/POST based authentication. However as I only have a self signed certificate this generates a warning in the users browser.
There is no requirement to encrypt the username/password submit to the portal in this implementation!
How can I run the Captive Portal without encryption on port 80?
Hi...We support Captive Portal only in encrypted mode (SSL) to protect the user credentials. Please submit a feature request to your local Palo Alto SE if you need Captive Portal in the clear with no encryption.
May I recommend that you consider obtaining a valid SSL certificate and apply it to the redirect host in Captive Portal. The valid cert will resolve the SSL warning. Thanks.
