Sitting at Eastern Michigan University on the wireless network using T.A.I.L.S. It's a little slow, but that's ok. I'm riding across TOR to an exit node in germany.
To get this to work:
I loaded the system from the Live CD.
Then using the unsafe browser, I was able to get to the capture portal. To do that, you need to go to a non-https site. I like to use www.sluggy.com. Going to www.google.com got grabbed by HTTPSeverywhere, and was dragged to encrypted.google.com. Sadly that doesn't work with EMU's capture portal.
After that, started the ice-weasel browser to make sure it worked right. Which it did. Then shutdown the unsafe browser.
So this works.
