MAC binding on IAP

Hi guys,

may I ask if IAP 205 supports MAC binding? where in you have to declare the MAC add of a device to allow access w/o username password? i think its different on MAC authentication. any suggestions? TIA

Re: MAC binding on IAP

hi, tnx for the response, however client plans to export their MAC list/database from Cisco controller to Aruba so they can access w/o CP and replace their existing cisco APs with aruba for smooth migration.

Re: MAC binding on IAP

How big is the mac database?  Managing mac address lists is typically a cumbersome process.  Have they though of just extending the timeout or going to a secure method that uses usernames and passwords where they don't have to maintain mac addresses?

Re: MAC binding on IAP

thanks for your response cjoseph.


at least 50 MAC addresses for demo purposes only as they want to test the capability of iap205 to handle user density with apprf and clientmatch. i will still offer 802.1x or clearpass for byod to them but for now i need to know if mac add binding is supported aside from mac auth.thanks

Re: MAC binding on IAP

Hi cjoseph,

 

  "MAC binding" was the term when  using MAC as authentication per devices on MSM Controller.

 

I already tested it on IAP under the term "MAC authentication" where you declare the MAC address of the device as the username and password.

 

in short, I already tested it successfully.

 

 thank you very much :D
