Hello Everyone,

We are running the latest Kerio Control (8.3.4) on a Kerio rackmount appliance, and cannot get the captive portal to work.

We have turned on the require all users to login for HTTP/HTTPS access which is what the documentation says is required for the captive portal to work.

We have also followed the Instructions for IE to

- Add the firewall URL to IE's trusted sites
- Turn on automatically logon in intranet zone using current username and password
- Under Advanced, Enable Authenticated Windows Access

We have found that users browsing to the portal manually have to still logon using SSL, but if we add NTLM=1 on the URL they are logged on automatically.

But if a user goes to a webpage, and isn't authenticated they will never be redirected to the captive portal. This is a major pain.

We would set the Control URL to be the users homepage but because it runs on a non-standard port when the user goes home they just get a error, because we cannot put a CNAME externally to redirect to something like google.

All PC's are Windows 7, with a Active Directory 2012 R2 servers and domain. Kerio Control is joined to the domain.

Has anyone got the captive portal working????
