Re: wildcard with zeroshell

Forums Network Management ZeroShell Captive Portal with Wildcard SSL certificate Re: wildcard with zeroshell


I just registered to this forum to say thank you to tphipps for his workaround and give a solution for keeping these changes after reboot:

Comment out the code in /root/kerbynet.cgi/scripts/cp_auth_start that updates the cp_as-httpd file with the CN of the certificate like so:

    render "$TEMPLATE/$HTTPCONF" | sed "s/%{SERVER_ADDR}/$CN/g" #> /var/register/system/cp/Auth/cp_as-httpd
render "$TEMPLATE/$HTTPCONF" #> /var/register/system/cp/Auth/cp_as-httpd
render "$TEMPLATE/$HTTPCONF" #> /var/register/system/cp/Auth/cp_as-httpd

and then hardcode the appropriate hostname directly into /var/register/system/cp/Auth/cp_as-httpd like so:

RewriteRule ^.*$${filter:%{QUERY_STRING}} [L]

instead of:

RewriteRule ^.*$ https://*${filter:%{QUERY_STRING}} [L]

Now, the only system folders that keep changes after reboot are /Database and /DB. Therefore, you can copy the modified files there:

mkdir /Database/Scripts
cp /root/kerbynet.cgi/scripts/cp_auth_start /Database/Scripts/
cp /var/register/system/cp/Auth/cp_as-httpd /Database/Scripts/

and then copy them back automatically on system boot:
at the `Web-GUI > Setup > Startup/Cron > Pre Boot` enter these commands:

/bin/cp /Database/Scripts/cp_auth_start /root/kerbynet.cgi/scripts/
/bin/cp /Database/Scripts/cp_as-httpd /var/register/system/cp/Auth/

There you go! Now the users will be redirected to “” instead of “https://*”
