In case captive portal server is hosted on WiNG device internally and there is no virtual server host FQDN configured
, captive portal will use IP address of 126.96.36.199
to perform redirection.
As this IP got resolvable to CloudFare, it’s best practices to update Captive Portal Server hostname to make sure that process is working correctly.
When there is a server host FQDN entry within Captive portal configuration (server host test.ip
), wireless client will be redirected to such domain name instead.
However, local IP 188.8.131.52 is still used for internal reporting (cpstats
