Authentication in Capture Portal

Hi community, I want to give some users permission to open blocked website via Captive portal by giving them username and password. How can I do that?

Thank you

  • Hi  

    When a user tries to visit a website that is blocked (by category/activity) they are prompted with the following block page:

    If the user selects "Login to network" they are prompted with the XG's captive portal to authenticate. (How are you planning to authenticate users? Locally? AD?)

    Within your configured web policy, make sure the user is part of a rule that allows them to access this blocked website.
    (See: Sophos XG Firewall: How to set web filter policy to block access to websites)


    This example is allowing the "Executives" group of users to be allowed access to all web traffic, while all other users are blocked for certain user activities.
