Hi NetPro


I have a WLC 5500 with software 7.3, and some SSID it's using web authentication with a internal custom captive portal, and the configuration works without problem, but, when a client connect at captive portal, the portal captive show the error for the certificate SSL. I know if a want the this error don't show i need a CA certificate with, verisign, godaddy, microsoft, etc. But, only want my enterprise client don't see this error, for all the other client i don't care if the error its showing up or not.


Can i the captive portal use only HTTP and not HTTPS?


I have a certificate entity in my company, what certificate i need, and how to this certificate is loaded? like this?

You can disable https and use http if you want.

For WLC Release 7.2 code, use the config network web-auth secureweb disable command to disable. This only disables HTTPS for the web authentication and not the management.

Yes it is. Just to let you know, v7.3 and v7.5 are deferred and maybe look at upgrading in the future to v7.4.121.0.

The process is the same though but might require a reboot, don't remember off hand.
