Controller-less WLANs

How to change the user idle-timeout or user inactivity timeout value on Instant AP?

Aruba Employee

Environment : This article applies to Aruba Instant Access Points.

 

In Aruba Controller configuration we term it as user idle-timeout, where as in Instant AP it is called as "Inactivity Timeout" and is located in the SSID profile.

This timeout value is the maximum period after which a client is considered idle if there is no wireless traffic from the client. The timeout period is reset if there is wireless traffic. When a client session is inactive for the specified duration, the client is aged out and is removed from client table.

The wireless client need to re-associate the wireless network again. And, if the network is guest SSID with user authentication enabled, the user need to get re-authenticate.


By default the value is configured to 1000 seconds. Range: 60 - 1000  seconds


Below screenshot shows the "Inactivity Timeout' in the web interface:
