CAN EdgeOS Portal Configuration

To configure an Access network as Captive, the user must first create the Network Traffic Policy and the network must be configured as Captive Access Network in the EdgeOS Portal.

Create Network Traffic Policy

  • Login into the EdgeOS Portal.

  • Click the image-20240607-144953.png icon at the top right corner of the homepage.

  • Click Configuration Wizard.

  • Click Step 4 Traffic Policies in the Configuration Wizard.

  • By default, the Network tab is selected.

  • Click + Policy button to create a new network traffic policy. The Policy Name field becomes available under the Create Traffic Policy section.

  • Enter the Policy Name. For example, “CaptiveNetworkBlock”.

  • Click Save button.

  • The above policy should be left empty. All traffic will be redirected to the Captive Portal login page.

Note: If auto-redirection is enabled for an Access Network, the Traffic policy created will not be applicable. Auto redirection functionality will override the traffic policy. Also, auto-redirection will not work in the user device if the user has set an implicit deny rule, despite captive redirection being enabled.

The Device Traffic Policy name must match the Traffic Policy configured in the Captive Portal Administrative portal.
