I am using V18.104.22.168 of vWLAN. The redirect IP address of 10.252.0.130 is correct. This is a private IP range assigned to each AP & is used to give temporary dhcp leases to clients while in the Unregistered Role. It is called NAC addressing and can be found under Provision - Wireless - NAC Addressing.
When I initially setup captive portal authentication I too had an issue with the IE redirect. What was happening in my case was Internet Explorer was failing an online check for publisher & server certificate revocation. The client was requesting an internet page from a NAC address & the ap NAT'S that to the ap's native vlan ip address. My problem was the ap's native ip address did not have access to the internet, only on campus access. After changing a firewall rule allowing the ap's native vlan ip address internet access Internet Explorer successfully redirected.
Hope this helps.
Thanks for the reply. I have double checked and the AP I am testing with is in the native Vlan which is the same vlan as all other PC's and have internet access. I double checked the DHCP binding and can see that it is getting an address from the data VLAN.
I am using 2_2_1_20 if that makes any difference and the controller is in our data centre behind NAT.
Issue got cleared up by support very promptly.
Point to note. There are a few patches for release 2_2_1_20 that resolve the web server issues for AP's that are connecting across a WAN.
