Captive Portal is more commonly used with traffic going from a trusted to an untrusted zone.  It may work with traffic originating in the untrust zone, depending on your network configuration.  Please contact Support so that you can discuss your options with them.

Just for interest sake, is this possible and has this been done anywhere?

Hello,

Yes it's possible and it's exactly what I'm doing on my box.

FYI, I have a static public IP address and am using many-to-one NAT (PAT) from inside to outside network.

Authentications I tried are local, Kerberos and LDAP (so last two with Active Directory integration). All working but the AD integration really helps if you are already using user-id

It's a rather basic setup, only captive portal, no NTLM or session cookies.

Best regards,

Koen.
