SEP Blocking Hotel Authentication Portal Site

Created: 11 Apr 2013 | 6 comments

So, I've had a lot of users reporting an issue with not being able to access the hotel wireless.

Occurs when they go to connect to the network, the re-direct page to authenticate to the hotel wireless does not come up. They are able to connect to the wireless network, but it says they are connected to the wireless network but doesnt redirect to any hotel wireless authentication page to complete the connection. Could be wrong but have had a suspicion that the problem lies with the SEP firewall.

This is happening with other hotels as well. They're able to connect to the wireless network.

The only traffic log found with blocked activity.

What happens if NTP is disabled, just to test it?

Please click the "Mark as solution" link at bottom left on the post that best answers your question. This will benefit admins looking for a solution to the same problem.

Try to enable SEP debug with Advanced TSE debugging - http://www.symantec.com/docs/TECH102412  - this should show all blocked (if any) packages by firewall - as well these normally not logged in the SEP console.

With SEP disabled it works fine.

I'll give it a try with Advanced TSE debugging.

The TSE debug should work, as it is the changes in the registry. You need to restart the SMC to logging enabled.
