Hi Colin Joseph,

                 Thank you for reply me. Now the customer use  1 virtual controller but when client mover to other IAP that must authenication again. 

                  I serch in KB already and found about WISPr configuration as link below.

So are you saying that there are 2 IAPs in this cluster or only one?  If both IAPs are in the same cluster, there should not be any need to authenticate twice.  If both are in different clusters, the answer is yes.

 

What is the use case here and why is wispr an option?

Can I ask why you have both mac-authentication and internal captive portal enabled on the same SSID?

Hi 

            Because firstime the customer told me cannot roaming on captive portal that make them try to use MAC authentication for block compain fronm user.

Do you mean the recommendation came from Aruba? Or someone else?

No it's not recommended but the customer try to do something for help user not authentication again when user move to other IAP.

Ok... We should remove mac-authentication; it does not help caching the client's captive portal authentication state for internal captive portal; in fact it would make things worse.

Before, when only internal captive portal is enabled, and mac-auth is disabled, was the client state not carrying-over during roaming? What behavior did you see exactly?
