DNS problem with WLC2206


I've setup a WLC 2206 with 3 LAPs. They register fine and all seem to work. The APs are directly connected to the internal switch of the WLC (P6, P7 and P8). I do not use VLANs. P1 is the connection to the rest of the network.

I can manage the WLC. The WLC sees the LAPs, and they register.

When a client connects, it works as expected. I see the association in the WLC.

HOWEVER: when the client tries to surf the web, the 'site cannot be found or DNS error' occurs. I use WebVPN, so I would expect a redirect to the login page. The DNS resolving however, does not work, and this error occurs.

When I type in the browser:

I do get the login screen, and I can login.

The IP settings appear to be right (correct IP/mask/gateway/DNS) but resolving is an issue.

Can anyone help?

Re: DNS problem with WLC2206

With WebAuth, the clients homepage or URL they try to first go to, can't be a secure site (https). Have you tried to see if Google for a home page works.
