Topic: Very slow login process
I recently install the Chillispot Captive Portal solution on a small test-setup using ubuntu linux as server and Windows XP as client pc.
I followed this guide : https://help.ubuntu.com/community/WifiDocs/ChillispotHotspot/8.04
The system works fine, but! the redirection to the webserver and chillispot loginpage is very very slow.
I timed the process from starting IE7 to the login page appearing to about 20 seconds.
The server and client machines have the same specs: P4 2.4Ghz, 256MB Mem, 40GB HDD, 100Mbps.
The network schema can be seen here:
I created a wireshark dump of the traffic, which is available here:
