captive portal fatal error

Captive Portal
Target version:
Start date:
Due date:
% Done:


Estimated time:
Affected Version:
Affected Architecture:


running build pfSense-2.0-BETA4-20101111-2203 x86

Configured pfsense for Captive Portal with DNS forward and no user Auth.

Basic routing and dns settings, no other changes.

Once I click through the Captive Portal splash page, I get:

"Fatal error: Call to undefined function display_error_form() in /etc/inc/ on line 109"

Looking at /etc/inc/, lines 109-112 are:

display_error_form("501", "An HTTP_REFERER was detected
other than what is defined in System -> Advanced (" . $_SERVER['HTTP_REFERER'] .
"). You can disable this check if needed in System -> Advanced -> Admin.");

I tried disabling the HTTP_REFERER under advanced options, as well as the http redirect.

Still getting the error.

Don't perform referer check if display_error_form is not defined (captive portal), just like as is done for the DNS rebind check. Ticket #1007

I'm not trying to open a page with any form of redirect, just or a blank "test" page on a remote httpd.

I've committed a check like what is done before the DNS rebind checks. With the change it should prevent the code giving the error from running. The captive portal probably shouldn't have a referrer check anyway, because you can get there from anything.
