Can someone explain how we can manually sign-on to the EasyPass Captive Portal for either Guest Self-Registration or Microsoft Azure?
When connecting to the Wireless network, some devices don’t automatically come up with the Captive Portal from the Wi-Fi menu of the device. In these instances, I would like to use the browser to navigate to the Captive Portal instead.
How do you therefore suggest I go about configuring our Guest WiFi to allow logins from a browser that supports HSTS enabled websites, such as google.com, which most browsers have search engines configured against?
Most of the time the device brings up the captive portal fine but there are a few occasions, that for whatever reason, it just doesn’t load and in those occasions, I’d like to be able to tell the user to visit a webpage to bring up the portal manually.
We already have an instruction leaflet for Guest Wi-Fi so I think the best solution is to add a QR code to a non-SSL website (probably http://neverssl.com because it’s specifically designed for this issue and easier to write on devices that can’t scan a QR code) to that guide and should they have issues loading the Captive Portal automatically on their device, they scan the QR code instead.
That sounds like a good solution. It would be interesting to hear back if you ever figure out the reason why devices don’t always detect the captive portal. (I suppose it’s possible that they won’t be able to load http://neverssl.com when they’re in that state…)
