guestnet fails to load login page on ethernet on firefox
I resolved the issue by connecting to WiFi, opening sucs.org/guestnet, signing up with my WiFi card's MAC address, plugging in ethernet, disabling WiFi on my laptop, reloading the site, and overwriting my MAC address.
zev: guestnet ethernet works, but seems a bit dodgy to connect - the login page sent to guestnet.sucs.orgsuccess and not guestnet.sucs.org/success - I also had to log in to that site using my wifi first, and then overwrite my saved MAC address when accessing with ethernet, for whatever reason - wouldn't load any other way when in though, works great, my laptop is likely limiting the speed somewhat tswsl1989: OK, well the first problem should be easy enough to fix - sounds like a missing / in the code. Did you already have a MAC address registered? AFAIK we only allow one registered MAC per user through the website and automated tools, so that might just mean that the tool needs to handle that case more appropriately. zev: I didn't have a MAC address registered - the page just woudn't load with ethernet plugged in. My fix was to register my MAC address with the WiFi instead of ethernet, and then plug in the ethernet, reload the site, and overwrite the saved MAC address for (presumably) my WiFi card. There's a pretty decent chance that it was a Firefox issue tbh (there was a security warning for the site that only appeared and could be bypassed when opening with WiFi). tswsl1989: Might be an HTTPS issue. The site tries to do redirect to the registration page, which causes errors if the page you tried to load was a HTTPS one. Since the system was originally set up, HTTPS is a lot more common but there are also some semi-standard ways to indicate that you're on a closed network and need to log in. Some research and debugging required (For "The site tries" read "Our networking infrastructure tries" - a lot of the heavy lifting is done by the firewall settings on gateway to redirect you to the scripts which are just served as a vhost on silver)
