Thanks for the reply and for asking about it to be identified by Aruba. Our school administrators are worried that kids will play the game @ school and want us to make sure it's block it on the school wifi. So I wanted to check to see how/if we could do that to be able to answer them back :-)

School is out for Summer. The administration wants to be proactive with making sure it's blocked on our school wifi (we realize if they are using cellular we can't control), but want to make sure it's blocked on the aruba wifi before students come back to school next month.

Add the session ACL to your user-role(s) and be sure your controller has DNS servers defined and name lookups enabled.
