Web Passthrough as HTTP?

Unanswered Question
Sep 24th, 2010

Is there a way to set up web passthrough as HTTP, instead of HTTPS?

We wish to set up a hotspot where the only data shown to our users is the Terms of Service.  Our users wouldn't provide any info, only hit the "Accept" button.  None of this information needs to be secured.  Is there some way that I'm overlooking where I could simply make this redirect be to http:\\1.1.1.1\login.html instead?  We'd rather avoid buying a cert and managing that when it expires, etc.

I have this problem too.

We have found a way for this to work, but it isn't ideal.

Go to the Web interface,  Management, then HTTP.  Enable HTTP and disable HTTPS, hit apply.

Log back in via HTTP.  Save config, then reboot the WLC.

Once it completes the reboot, assuming the WLAN is already configured for web passthrough, the redirect you get on a guest client goes to HTTP://1.1.1.1/login.html instead of HTTPS://1.1.1.1/login.html ...

However, now the administrative web interface is only available in the "HTTP" flavor, not via HTTPS...

Anyone know of a way to get our desired outcome of using HTTP for the web passthrough, while still retaining HTTPS for management???

Thanks,

Paul
