Splash page

The Portal Splash Page is used in an environment where full guest management is not necessary. This feature allows you to set up a captive portal page to which guests are directed when they access the network. The page may contain an Acceptable Use Policy and guests must indicate that they agree before being granted access to the Production network. Using this option, guests do not register using credentials, they have no guest account, they are simply allowed to access the network on a specific SSID. Hosts are registered as devices, are displayed in Host view and are not associated with any user.

Using the Portal Splash Page or anonymous authentication eliminates the need to configure Guest Templates, Sponsors for guests and Guest Accounts, therefore those options are removed from the Quick Start wizard. However, you must still go through the Discovery process to locate FortiNAC arrays, the Portal Page step to configure the content displayed in the captive portal and the Network Devices step to configure your SSIDs.

Click Apply to save your changes or navigate to another step to abandon them. Navigating to this step refreshes the data with the latest information stored in the database.

Note

Anonymous authentication is not supported with a portal configured with Host Inventory used as the success page type.
