Hello Hakim,

You can chose from CLI or GUI method creating the captive portal.
If you wish, you can use LDAP as authentication source also.

The redirection is more difficult here as you'd need to create a tunnel for this.
Otherwise I am afraid this is not possible. Would you tell me little more about the design?

Regards,
Ondrej

I have :
- VX9000 in my datacenter.
- 5 sites (RF Domain) with multiple AP.
I want to set a WLAN with captive portal on these 5 sites:
how to create this : local VLAN or tunnel mode ?
who will act as DHCP for this WLAN...etc
who to redirect all trafic to my proxy

Hakim,

as this is quite complex question I'd recommend you to contact one of our sales engineer trained in providing integrated solutions.
This will cover whole design plan and will provide better application of Captive portal features.

In short - you should keep the traffic locally bridged in guest VLAN (walled garden), then use i.e. post-authentication-vlan to distinguish between non-authenticated and authenticated clients. Authenticated vlan might be tunneled to your domain or anywhere you need. Non-authenticated will be soft-locked in walled garden.

DHCP is matter of design but this is not blocked by CaptivePortal so it might be external source.

Ondrej
