Preservation of the Original URL During Redirection of Subscriber Sessions

When guided entrance service is used and a digital subscriber line (DSL) user logs in for the first time and opens a Web browser, the subscriber is directed to a specific URL for user provisioning. Provisioning involves application of a service definition which enables all HTTP traffic to be handled temporarily by the HTTP local server. After the provisioning process, the service definition is removed and traffic no longer flows to the HTTP local server. At this point, the user is redirected to the original requested URL. The HTTP local server redirect feature supports the preservation of the original URL as a variable in the redirect URL. If preservation of the original URL feature is enabled, then the user's HTTP session is directed back to the URL which was requested before the redirection.
