Since the archboot iso does not include a web browser (eg. lynx), wget can be used to function temporarily as a makeshift web browser to submit the form. Once you are connected to the network, enter this command:
 +
 
 +
# wget -qO- '<nowiki>http://xkcd.com/</nowiki>' | less
 +
 
 +
Any website not using http(ssl) will work fine here, using xkcd is not required.

Next, search for a web form. The code around the web form will be the used to format the request to send to the server. Using less, search is started with a "/". Typing:

<form name="login" method="post" action="<nowiki>https://radius-portal.example.net/submit.php</nowiki>">

 +
    <input type="submit" id="submit" value="I Agree">
 +
</form>
 +
 
 +
Here, the method used is ''post'' (from the ''method'' field on the form), the url to submit to is ''<nowiki>https://radius-portal.example.net/submit.php</nowiki>'' (from the ''action'' field on the form), and the fields needed to submit are called ''redir'' and ''submit'' (from the ''name'' and ''id'' fields of the input elements - id is used when name is absent).

 +
Press "Q" to exit less. To submit this form, use the command

# wget -qO- --post-data="redir=<nowiki>http://xkcd.com/&submit</nowiki>" "<nowiki>https://radius-portal.example.net/submit.php</nowiki>" | less
 +
 
 +
Which should give a successful message (such as "redirecting you to <nowiki>http://xkcd.com/</nowiki>"). From here, you should be able to connect to the internet to download packages required for the completion of the installation.

Protected page

Protecting this (relatively small) page seems counter productive to me, or is there a overarching reason I should be aware of?--Araeos (talk) 20:13, 30 December 2014 (UTC)

Behind a RADIUS portal

By Tyzoid [1]. Maybe this could be added to the main article, if the archboot ISO does in fact not include a browser. It may be better suited for WPA2 Enterprise, however. -- Alad (talk) 03:31, 10 March 2015 (UTC)

Since the archboot iso does not include a web browser (eg. lynx), wget can be used to function temporarily as a makeshift web browser to submit the form. Once you are connected to the network, enter this command:

# wget -qO- 'http://xkcd.com/' | less

Any website not using http(ssl) will work fine here, using xkcd is not required.

Next, search for a web form. The code around the web form will be the used to format the request to send to the server. Using less, search is started with a "/". Typing:

/<form

should reveal a section of code that looks similar to this:

<form name="login" method="post" action="https://radius-portal.example.net/submit.php">
   <input type="hidden" name="redir" value="http://xkcd.com/">
   <input type="submit" id="submit" value="I Agree">
</form>

Here, the method used is post (from the method field on the form), the url to submit to is https://radius-portal.example.net/submit.php (from the action field on the form), and the fields needed to submit are called redir and submit (from the name and id fields of the input elements - id is used when name is absent).

Press "Q" to exit less. To submit this form, use the command

# wget -qO- --post-data="redir=http://xkcd.com/&submit" "https://radius-portal.example.net/submit.php" | less

Which should give a successful message (such as "redirecting you to http://xkcd.com/"). From here, you should be able to connect to the internet to download packages required for the completion of the installation.

As a note, this was written in reference to the official ISO, not the archboot iso (I was mistaken on the name). Also, as Alad has pointed out, there is a web browser (elinks) on the main arch iso, which I had a difficult time finding through my searching. Perhaps a quick reference to elinks would be nice on the "connecting to the internet" secion on the beginner's guide would be warranted? Especially as a way to verify that the user has internet connectivity. Tyzoid (talk) 23:24, 10 March 2015 (UTC)
I agree, added with [2]. For Installation guide, Talk:Installation guide#Suggestions to update this guide as part of ISO is related. I can't verify if any browsers are available in Archboot. — Kynikos (talk) 10:28, 12 March 2015 (UTC)
