I have a captive portal with radius username and password and configured a bypass to a series of pages in a whitelist. (in VX9000)

 

I want clients to be able to access google play store of android and app store of iOS although they are not logged in on the captive portal.

 

By adding the following entries to the whitelist I get clients to access the google play store and download apps ok.

android.clients.google.com

gght.com

gvt1.com

play.google.com

play.googleapis.com

www.googleapis.com


 

But I can not do the same with the app store. I have added the following dns entries:

apple.com

itunes.com

mzstatic.com

I manage to access the app store but I can not download apps.

 

Does anyone know what dns entries do I have to enable in the whitelist to allow downloads from the app store?




Thanks.
