Configuring Cisco WLC 5508 for one SSID with http and another SSID with https webauth

Posted on 2012-09-03

Hi Experts,

We have Cisco WLC 5508 running software version 7.2.103.
There are 2 guest SSIDs on it.
I want to configure one with HTTP webauth and another with HTTPS webauth.

Currently, I run management access using HTTPS/SSH and webauth for both SSIDs with HTTP only. So I believe there would be a way to configure for individual SSIDs too.

Kindly help, is it possible? If so, please help with config commands.

Many Thanks!

    Have a read of this...

    From what I can tell it appears that you can differentiate HTTP and HTTPS management (so Web-Auth via HTTP, while allowing HTTPS management) but you can't actually specify HTTP or HTTPS per SSID for Web-Auth.

    However, you should be able to use a custom or external web page for Web-Auth which might be able to redirect to HTTPS for a particular SSID.

    Hi Craigbeck,

    Thanks for response.
    I have checked with Cisco TAC and been told that redirection to external https server also will not work. Really disappointed.

    But I still am expecting something different from experts community, as Cisco TAC sometimes misses out some points.
