Setting up a captive portal with Cisco 871 WiFi router

Unanswered Question

I'm trying to setup a captive portal using this guide by I would like for my router to forward www traffic to my captive portal server for authentication. I found this article on SSG TCP Redirect Access Control List, but from the looks of it my IOS doesn't support this feature. So I was wondering what would be the best way to forward that traffic to the captive portal? Below list the info on my router and the IOS

ROM: System Bootstrap, Version 12.3(8r)YI4, RELEASE SOFTWARE

System image file is "flash:c870-advipservicesk9-mz.124-24.T2.bin"

Cisco 871W (MPC8272) processor (revision 0x300) with 118784K/12288K bytes of memory.

Hi Lucien,

Thanks for your reply. But I would like to have it setup so that guest can create their own account. I work at a center for indpendent living and we do a lot of adovocacy for people with disabilities. My whole goal with this was to have guest sign-up with their e-mail to use our internet access for free. Than we could send out our bi-monthly newsletters to their e-mail. I guess I should also mention we have an ASA 5510. Would it be possible to forward the traffic using that device?

You will not find this feature with the router itself.

You have two options you can go with: Nac Guest Server or a Wireless Lan Controller.
