UniFi - guests not redirected to portal when page starts with https

Hi,

I have strange problem with guests trying to connect to free WIFI network using UniFi captive portal.

If the guests home page is set to eg. https://www.google.si it never gets redirected to login page. The browser page is just plain white and loading..but never gets loaded. After some time the "web page is not available" message appears. 

If guest manually types non https address (like http://google.com) in address bar the redirection on login page is instant.

If guests home page is anything on http instead https the portal page (login) is working without problem.

 

Is anybody facing same problems?  The problem is on all browsers and WIN and MAC machines.

 

Controller version is  4.6.3 but I am facing same problems also on controllers version 4.6.0

 

I tried with the config.properties

 config.redirect_to_https=false

with no luck..

 

Any suggestions??

Try
