Portal page setup for version 1

Note

Applies only to Version 1 Portal Pages.

If you are adding the Guest Manager feature to your existing FortiNAC system and you are using the Version 1 portal pages, you will need to modify your Registration page so that it links to the Guest Manager Guest Login page. The default link is for the Guest Account Guest Login page.

Guest Account is a feature that provides limited guest access to your network. Each guest account is created individually by an administrator.

Guest Manager is a feature that provides a suite of tools for creating and managing large numbers of guests.

When any unknown user connects to your network a Registration page is displayed. If you are using Guest Manager this page should contain separate links for regular network users and Guests or Contractors. When a user clicks the Guest link a Guest Login page is displayed asking them for their credentials. To display the guest page associated with the Guest Manager feature, your normal registration page must be edited to include a link to that page.

To edit your current registration page so that it calls the new guest manager guest login page, see the instructions below.

If you choose to disable all legacy or Version 1 portal pages and use the Content Editor in Portal Configuration to manage your pages, the option above will not apply. You can edit your Guest pages from the Content Editor. See Portal content editor.

Update guests link on the registration page

When users connect to the network a registration page is displayed. This page is usually index.html, however you may have chosen to use a different html file. To allow guests created with Guest Manager to connect to your network , the Guests link on the registration page or index.html must be modified so that it opens the appropriate Guest Login page.

Do the following to edit the Guests link on an existing portal page. The file is assumed to be index.html. If this is not the file you normally call GuestLogin.html from, edit the file you use instead.

  1. Use an ssh utility to reach the appliance.
  2. Use vi to edit the content of each of the following files. Within each file change GuestLogin.html or GuestLogin2.html to GuestLoginGCS.html. Each file contains two references to GuestLogin.html or GuestLogin2.html.

    /bsc/Registration/registration/index.html

    /bsc/Remediation/remediation/index.html

    /bsc/Authentication/authentication/index.html

Example:

<td width="25%" rowspan="2" class="opte"><a href="GuestLoginGCS.html" onMouseOver="MM swapImage('Image2','','img/acguest.gif',1)" onMouseOut="MM_swapImgRestore()">

<img src="img/ac.gif" alt="Guest Access" name="Image2" width="100" height="100" border="0" id="Image2"></a></td>

Note

The only difference from the standard web pages is that the href is GuestLoginGCS.html instead of GuestLogin.html.
