This section describes web-based network login.
For web-based authentication, you need to configure the switch DNS name, default redirect page, session refresh, and logout-privilege. URL redirection requires the switch to be assigned a DNS name. The default name is network-access.com. Any DNS query coming to the switch to resolve switch DNS name in unauthenticated mode is resolved by the DNS server on the switch in terms of the interface (to which the network login port is connected).
NoteWhen both HTTP and HTTPS are enabled on the switch and sending HTTP requests from the Netlogin client, HTTPS takes preference and the switch responds with a HTTPS response.
