Hi. Weird thing here, whenever I enable the captive portal to run and I try to connect  I'm not redirected to the authentication page. And also I cant connect to the internet. I'm using the local user manager. Here are the contents of my html page, I'm I doing something wrong

<html>
<head>
<title>Olive Gardens | Login</title>
</head>
<body bgcolor="#D9f5FF">

<center> 
<img src="captiveportal-logo.png">

<p>Please Login to access our internet.</p>
<form method="post" action="$PORTAL_ACTION$">
<input name="redirurl" type="hidden" value="$PORTAL_REDIRURL$">
<table>
   <tr><td>Username:</td><td><input name="auth_user" type="text"></td></tr>
   <tr><td>Password:</td><td><input name="auth_pass" type="password"></td></tr>
   <tr><td>&nbsp;</td></tr>
   <tr>
     <td colspan="2">
   <center><input name="accept" type="submit" value="Continue"></center>
     </td>
   </tr>
</table>
</center>
</form>
</body>
</html>

Any troubleshooting tips?
While saying what doesn't happen is useful, it is often more useful to say what does happen.

Have you specified any Captive Portal pass throughs?

Is there anything of interest in the appropriate system logs (firewall, system) at around the time you attempted the web access?

Most commonly that's because you're not using the DNS forwarder as your clients' DNS server and don't have a passthrough for the DNS servers so you're blocking DNS.
