Question

XMC, NAC and Captive Portal

I have a PoC with XMC, NAC and Cisco Devices (wired and wireless)
Most of the feature are working well (Inventory, Backup, NAC with ACL)
The client asked for a captive portal.
How can I use XMC/NAC with Captive Portal for wired and/or wireless users?
What I found is: https://gtacknowledge.extremenetworks.com/articles/How_To/How-To-Determine-What-Type-of-Redirection-to-NAC-Should-be-Used-in-Your-Network-and-Configuration-Steps-For-Each-Method/?q=captive+portal+https+redirect&l=en_US&fs=Search&pn=1
But in my opinion, the solution with the ACL and DNS is not handable.
What are usable solutions? Does anybody has experience with XMC/NAC Captive Portal (and 3rd vendor Devices)?

Hello,

From a GTAC perspective the only redirection method we've seen with Cisco WLC has been use of the Cisco-ACPair=URL Redirect.

I've done captive portal in the past with Policy Based Routing on Cisco devices.
