    How do you set up a process whereby wireless Guest users are re-directed to a url e.g www.extremenetworks.com after accepting terms and conditions on the captive portal ?

    Hello Siobhan,
    You did not detail what WiNG 5 device, but if using a wireless controller (e.g. NX, VX, RFS) or access point that supports this feature, you will use the following via the CLI:

    enable [enter]

    config [enter]

    captive-portal xxxxxx [enter] (x represent captive portal policy. You can use tab key to auto-fill the name. If typing, capitalization matters with names)

    webpage-location advanced [enter]

    webpage external welcome xxxxxxxx [enter] (x represents complete URL)

    webpage internal welcome use-external-success-url [enter]



    com wr [enter]

    Hi Siobhan, I believe you need an entry in all of the the URL fields before the OK button becomes available.

    Thanks Christopher. We are using a AP7522 in VC mode. Entering the CLI commands you suggested , we get a 404 error
