Explanation of the problem
We use the Apple supported feature to add a pac file to the device which sends the traffic to a proxy server, when trying to connect to a wifi which requires authentication the wifi won’t allow connecting thru our proxy server before authenticating, so we need to make sure this authentication page/site goes directly and not thru our proxy
  The Solutions
1] Apple also has a built in feature to detect if a captive network is connected and it will then allow the authentication page to go direct and ignore the entire pac file, this will not work for a lot of newer wifi’s which are not setup as a captive network but rather they are setup as a local proxy so the Apple detection does not detect it, in that case we go to next solution
2] We can bypass the site of the wifi authentication in the pac file to not send this site to our proxy server, this is done in the advanced config, most of the reported ones are added globally, and if you find one which is not please report it to us, otherwise if still doesn’t work see next step
3] A lot of wifi’s not only are they not setup as a captive network they also wont direct your browser to their authentication page automatically and you need to manually go to the website of the airlines wifi login page
Sometimes doing forget network and connecting it again will make the device detect the captive network
