Hi,

We have a mixed WiFi setup that consists a C5210 (ver. 9.x), a V2110 (ver. 10.x) and an  Aruba 7030 controller. We need a unified guest wifi captive portal for guest registering via SMS validation and guest registering with sponsor validation.

Is it possible to integrate Aruba Clearpass solution as external captive portal for C5210 and V2110?

Regards,

Rahman

Hi Rahman,

If the methodology is to simply redirect user web traffic to the captive portal IP/FQDN, then it should be fine. Whether it is Aruba ClearPass ooor Extreme Guest for instance. ;)

Kind regards,

Hi Tomasz,

We want to integrate as external captive portal so we can also see the usernames etc on the controllers. I know one way is to setup an open SSID and route all traffic to captive portal appliance so any solution should work :) But we prefer first option if it is possible.

You should be able to redirect it with the External Captive Portal. Here's a GTAC article that discusses using the Firewall Friendly Captive portal:
