How to Customize Firewall Authentication HTML Files

  • Last updated on

The offline authentication process on the NextGen Firewall F includes HTML pages containing the login from, greeting messages and various status messages depending on the success of the authentication process. The default pages can be replaced by customized versions, to, for example, use the corporate branding, or to add additional text to the page. The customized HTML files must use different names from the default files. Replacing the default files would result in a dirty release.  The default HTML pages are located at /phion0/fwauthd/. The corresponding image directory is /phion0/fwauthd/lib/.

Limitations

  • Custom HTML pages are not included in PAR files.
  • Custom HTML pages are not synced to HA partners.

Step 1. Customize the HTML files

  1. Log in via SSH.
  2. Go to /phion0/fwauthd/
  3. Copy the HTML file to your client.
  4. Modify the HTML file as needed and rename it. E.g., from index.html to indexcustom.html.
  5. If images are used in the modified HTML files, copy them via scp to /phion0/fwauthd/lib/.

Step 2. Upload the custom HTML files

  1. Go to CONFIGURATION > Configuration Tree > Box > Virtual Servers > your virtual server > Assigned Services > Firewall > Forwarding Settings.
  2. In the left menu, select Authentication Messages.
  3. Click Lock.
  4. Click + to add a custom file entry. The Custom HTML Files window opens.
  5. Select Binary as the Type of the authentication message.
  6. Enter the file name in the Name field. E.g., indexcustom.html
  7. Enter the path to the server root, starting with '/'.

  8. Click Ex/Import and import the file.
  9. Click OK.
  10. Repeat these steps for all customized files.
  11. Click Send Changes and Activate.

Step 3. Use the custom HTML files

In the authentication configuration, replace the default authentication message files with the uploaded custom files. E.g., Replace index.html with indexcustom.html

  1. Go to CONFIGURATION > Configuration Tree > Box > Virtual Servers > your virtual server > Assigned Services > Firewall > Forwarding Settings.
  2. From the Configuration Mode, select Advanced View.
  3. In the left menu, select Authentication.
  4. Click Lock.
  5. Next to Operational Settings, click Edit.
