SSL Certificate Error received before and after Web Auth banner page when users try to access the Internet.
Is there a way to change the WebAuth to use http instead of https ?
If you are running 7.2 or newer code you can do it very simply. You just need to issue the command:
config network web-auth secureweb disable
We have version 126.96.36.199.
Is that command to disable WebAuth ?
We need the banner pager for logging purposes but don't want to get SSL Security messages.
As WebAuth use https thought it may be easier to use http instead ?
No, it doesn't disable webauth, it just stops it from needing to use HTTPS.
For 7.0 you need to disable HTTPS for management totally.
But I would just upgrade to newer code if your AP's will support being there.
Sorry what is the issue if I don't upgrade ? will APs issue another error ?
I have never done the upgrade so not sure if its quick or needs a lot of work.
if you don't upgrade, the management of the WLC will not be SSL encrypted. Some people don't want the management unencrypted.
And 7.0.116 is pretty old as well. Take a look at the release notes for 7.4 code and see if you like the features/bug fixes.
The client's don't need to download the certificate. they need to have a trust of the root authority that issues it. So if you use a well known authority, they should have that trust by default
We have client users roaming to UK from US and other countries using our WiFI how do you determine the well known authority ? We cant check every device so was not sure which certificate to go for ?.
I've not heard that it matters country to country. more of an OS thing.
But if you stick with Verisign, Thawte, even GoDaddy now a days you should be fine.
