Current implementation of landing page functionality only allows for displaying a network use disclaimer, or imposing a guest ticketing system. It would be nice if the landing page function could be tied to other authentication schemes such as MSAD or ngflocal.

This can be configured by setting up "Firewall Authentication".


You can use "Inline Authentication", which does not redirect to a login page but brings up the browsers login dialog.

For Offline Authentication, you need to configure two firewall rules:

1) Allow HTTP/HTTPS traffic from *authenticated users* to the Internet

2) Create an App Redirect rule to redirect HTTP/HTTPS traffic to Internet to local authentication daemon (must be below 1. and is only evaluated if 1. does not match).


Both setups are described in more detail here: https://techlib.barr... authentication


Kind regards,
