Customizing user login web pages

The web-based authentication process displays a series of web pages and status messages to the user during login. The web pages that are displayed can be:
  • Generic — default pages generated directly by the switch software

  • Customized — pages hosted on a local web server.

By creating customized login web pages, you can improve the "look and feel" of the web authentication process to correspond more closely with your network and business needs. For example, you can:
  • Identify the network that a client is trying to log into.

  • Provide contact information if a client has difficulty connecting to the network.

  • Incorporate CSS styles consistent with the appearance of your network.
