This captive portal server it is must be placed inline ? or i can put it as a service 'captive portal service' like dhcp/dns service in my LAN ? How Does My Controller Know it return the legitimate user ?

When using an external captive portal, you would redirect to the URL of the capital portal page. This is how its also done when you redirect to Cisco's ISE if ISE host the captive portal.

You can also use a third party like mentioned on the other post, but then that is not a redirect and is inline.

Another option (that runs on a Windows server) is DNS Redirector - http://dnsredirector.com

...you can use IIS (Microsoft's webserver included with server OS) as the web server, or apache, or any other, even external to the network (webhosting or colocation)

...this perticual captive portal is implemented with the server on the same network as the clients, and the only "requirement" that I know of is your DHCP server must hand out the DNS Redirector server's IP as the only DNS server, it then forwards DNS requests onto your other internal DNS server or your ISP

I know this product works with Cisco WLC's as I've done it many times.
