Hidden SSID

Hi,

 

I have Aruba IAP-225, and i configure Guest SSID and tick on "Hide" on the advance option.

 

The problem is, i found "Other Networks" show on the wireless network connection.

 

Question: Can i hide also "Other Networks" option? how?

Re: Hidden SSID

Hi,

 

clicking the "hide" button you only configure the AP not to populate the SSID name in the management beacon packet. It does not add additional security. 

 

So you can only hide the SSID name.

HI,

Re: Hidden SSID

Hiding of SSID will only stop beacons from being broadcasted, if you require a limited WIFI connection, you may require whitelisting of devices or MAC authenication (Mobility controller) or something even along the lines of a NAC ( Clearpass )
