Use Wi-Fi on end user's machine with captive portal

Learn to use wi-fi with captive portal.

Before you begin

If the EAA IT administrator has enabled captive portal support in the identity provider, you can access public wi-fi networks.

If the EAA IT administrator has enabled captive portal support, you can access public wi-fi networks, authenticate to the captive portal web page, and obtain access to internet on your machine which has EAA Client software.

How to

  1. Log in to the machine.
  2. Right-click the wi-fi icon and select the public wi-fi network.
  3. You will be redirected to the captive portal web page for this wi-fi network. If you open the EAA Client, the Network type is Captive portal.
  4. If the credentials are correct, you get access to the internet. The EAA Client icon changes from not connected () to trying to connect (), and then to connected () state. Or, if the user was connected to a different wi-fi network, the icon changes from connected (), to trying to connect (), and then to connected () state, to indicate the transition to a new wi-fi network. If you open the EAA Client, the Network type is Public.
