WIFI MSM730 IPHONE IPAD IPOD html auth

I'm using HTML-based user logins with the authentication RADIUS servers. When 'normal' PC clients firefox or internet explorer connect to the SSID, they are given a DHCP address and then need to open a browser to login via HTML-auth.

When an iPhone/ipod client connects to the SSID, a web browser automatically comes up (after a few seconds) at which they type in their login credentials. But on the client the Session Information screen (username, ipaddress, state, time and byte counters) is displayed but nothing else. On 'normal' clients, this is a separate window once the broswer is opened and authenticated.but all the time with the new version firmware on apple product the authentificatin box apear and not connect

Re: WIFI MSM730 IPHONE IPAD IPOD html auth

Here ya go:
ISSUE:
The default public access login page does not work with the Apple iPhone and iPod
devices. These devices may block popups preventing the user from seeing the login
page

SOLUTION:
The solution is published within the Software Release Notes for software version 5.3.6, published at the time of this writing at http://cdn.procurve.com/training/Manuals/MSM7xx-RN-Aug10-5998-0862-v536.pdf:

1. Edit index.asp and add the useragent check (sample code as follows):

function showsessionpageifnotsubscribe()
var useragent = navigator.userAgent;
if (useragent.indexOf('iPod') > -1) {
showSessionPage = false;
}

Next, enable the welcome-page and provide a means for the user to access or bookmark the logout URL or access the session-page URL.

2. Enable redirect to https and install a certificate.
3. Create an access-list to allow access to www.apple.com port 80.
