ESP32 and connecting to a Public WIFI with Captive Portal

Postby voodoo28 » Tue Mar 20, 2018 2:15 pm

How can I connect to a public WIFI that has a Captive Portal page where I have to click a button to connect. No password required.

With great difficulty :) the normal way would be to figure out what actions your browser takes when the button is clicked, then replicate that with an http client library on the ESP32.

I have monitored the portal page and all it does is collect your MAC address and redirect you with your mac in the address string.

any ideas how I can go about this?.. is this achieved your a post command?
