Cisco AP1242 Captive Portal for Auth?

I recently asked about radius authentication in general for getting onto WiFi network.  A step further - I wondered if there is a way to create captive portal with these APs.   To contrast I recently bought a CradlePoint WiFi router.  Built right into it is the ability for a web page to be presented to users with disclaimers and all when they try to attach to the SSID.  Takes just seconds to set up.  I bought this for a department that does trade shows and it works great for that.  Just pop in a 4G USB card and off they go.  Back on the Cisco APs - is it possible for set those up with some kind of captive portal?  That is a user is presented with a web page with disclaimers and the opportunity to authenticate (say via radius or AD).  I would be find if I had to point to the AP to another server that actually served the web page and performed the auth.  We are a Windows shop.  Thanks.

There's nothing straight from Cisco's APs that can do this, unless you use a Wireless Controller.

If you get the wireless controller with the Access Points then is it possible and relatively easy?

Yes it's a couple of clicks to enable the WebAuth feature, and you can use the internal user database, or external via RADIUS.

You'll need to convert the APs to Lightweight if you've bought Autonomous ones, or just buy Lightweight.
