This article describes setting up a new social captive portal service on the FortiAuthenticator, and configuring the FortiGate for captive portal access, allowing users to log in to the WiFi network using either SMS or e-mail self-registration.
For FortiAuthenticator firmware versions 5.5 and 6.0 captive portals have merged with Guest Portals.
Existing captive portals will convert to a guest portal configuration following a firmware upgrade.
The look and function of converted portals will remain unchanged.
Note that it is possible to add social users as many as licenses.
Example if there are 500 user licenses (local+remote), there will have 500 Social users also.
On the dashboard, it is only possible to see (local+remote) count.
The count of social users will be displayed on Authentication -> User Management -> Social Login Users.
# config firewall policyThis command allows access to the external Captive Portal.
set captive-portal-exempt enable
The user can now browse freely until the social login account expires.
