5508 WLC external splash page with email capture

Hi,

Just a quick question to see if anyone has this working as I an not sure if it is even possible.

At present I have a WLC5508 as a guest anchor in a DMZ and a web-auth passthrough WLAN configured.  There is a custom web bundle providing a terms and conditions page.

We want to start to capture the minimum data from a user that logs onto the guest wireless ( email address ) and would like to use the check email function on the controller - BUT - at the same time move from using the web bundle locally hosted splashpage on the controller to an external web server provided splashpage / walled garden.

From my understanding not sure that this is possible as the email check function is only valid in passthrough I think.

Hopefully someone has already tried this and either got it working or know it definitely doesn't work.

Thanks in advance.

Regards

If you want to capture more data from the user, you will need to use an external web server to do that.  I have had a couple of my customers built a web page just as a passthrough, but created field that the users must enter before they can hit the "Accept" button.  The data that was entered was put into a database for them to use.  You don't have to just have it as a passthrough if you don't want, you can make them enter a username and password that will be sent back to the WLC for authentication, but you just have to make sure you keep the java the same when you go from the internal to using the external web server.

Hi Scott,

Could you please share the page code? we are going to relocate the page from controller to external web page, we plan to make the page as asp.net and set up a database to store e-mail addresses, then we can generate report based on the e-mail address in the database to make further statistics. Is it possible to implement?

Thanks.

On the download page, there is an example bundle you can download. The zip file contains various examples including an email verification in which your web team can reference.

i am currently using web passthrough page which downloaded from the above page, the coming design is to store E-mail address of clients' input to database server and this page has to migrate to seperate server to acheive target. I am now searching how to programme the button to send email address to database server. Hope you can share if you have such page designed before.

I do not have a page I can share, since my clients usually take care of that piece.  The bundle has an email entry splash page example in which you can use.  The java script is in the page in which you can reference.

Thanks,

Scott

Hi,

You can create the page on an external web-server and on that page you can specify whatever field to be filled besides the username and the password.

Here is an external web-auth example:
