is there anyway to give internet access to users, who authenticate via browser portal.
i see only below access
a Hotspot-Portal may be an option.
Dirk's idea of defining a Hotspot on the External interface is very creative! You also might consider an HTML5 VPN definition. If you have more than a few active users on HTML5 VPNs, your UTM will get very slow. Let us know what you wind up doing.

Thanks for your reply, do you have any link to follow, never tried this option, also once the Hotspot is configured, i can give them access by local authentication instead of giving their ip on UTM right ?
the hotspot portal must be bound to an inbound interface.
if the way over the UTM is for restricted access only, you may bind the Portal to the internal client-LAN-interface.
But all traffic going through this interface would be restricted (not only internet but other connected networks too ... like DMZ/printer/...)
... and because the Client-MAC is registered as identity .... the Clients must be connected within same subnet (without routing between UTM & Client)
Possible another option ... a authenticated webfilter-policy ... works for browser-traffic only...

at this point you can click the question mark (at the top) and get pretty good help.
so by changing the authentication method to browser means, this will affect the other allowed Network Interface also right ?
example in my config Internal interface is there and i added new interface means the authentication will applies to both interface ?
yes, if this is a problem ... try/use webfilter profiles.
