Often now, when I connect to a public or corporate Wifi access point, on connection a browser pops up and directs me to a website to log in.
Presumably this is an OS function, which is triggered from the AP? If so:
How is this done? does the AP send a specific message in a post connection packet, including the destination address?
What is this process called (if anything)?
What OS versions support this process?
(Sorry for posting multiple small questions but they are all intrinsically linked)
