Hi, this is my first post on this forum.
I write because I just installed pfSense to use as a captive portal for a wi-fi.
This is the configuration:
- WAN 10.0.1.173 configured with static ip, with default gw 10.0.1.1
- LAN 10.30.30.1 configured with static ip. This network interface is connected directly to the access point wifi (10.30.30.254) and is also an active DHCP server (range: 200-250) for the release of addresses of wifi devices.
I enabled the CaptivePortal (on LAN) and everything seems to work, in the sense that if I put an address on the browser opens the page with the request (10.30.30.1:8000) authentication.
The problem is that once authenticated text remains "Redirecting to http://www.google.com
Surely i must configure the firewall to allow PC to exit the Internet LAN. In fact if I try from a machine connected to the wifi network (the address issued by the dhcp server is 10.30.30.201) to tell me to ping 184.108.40.206 Request timed out. Instead, if i "Ping" 10.30.30.254 I reply packets.
Can you help me?!?!?!?!?! Where is that wrong?
Thanks in advance to all those who "marry" my cause!
