It sounds as though the solution to redirecting www.apple.com/library/test/success.html (and anything else to be bypassed) is to add a DNS server to the local network.
yes, that is absolutely correct. That was my first setup as well, but of course it only worked in my own local network which was not enough for me.

Here's how:
  • You need a webserver (anything will do, even shttpd, mongoose, thttpd or go big with lighttpd, apache, etc.). Even a own hosted site with you provider will do.
  • Create a path /library/test on you webroot and copy the page www.apple.com/library/test/success.htm into that folder. You should now be able to call http://<yourhost>/library/test/success.htm from any browser in your local subnet.
  • Next you need an intercepting dns server in your local subnet. I use dnsmasq, but again, any other will do too. Point www.apple.com to the IP of you webserver.
  • When you start the kobo WiFi in your local subnet, you should see a call to your success,htm page in the logs of the webserver.
