Why does my IAP guest network keep making users enter in username and password?

I have IAP 215's with 2 SSID's set up. One is a guest network but it keeps asking my users, primarily iPhone users to re-enter the username and password after the phone's screen turns off. Is there a way to prevent the users from needing to relogin?

Do you have ClearPass?

IT_Girl,

 

ClearPass would be an external radius server/guest access solution that you might have purchased.

Re: Why does my IAP guest network keep making users enter in username and password?

IT_girl - Reason they ask is that this is most commonly solved by implementing MAC-authentication to avoid having to re-enter the username and passwords. Using a product like Clearpass for guest registration will also give you automatic MAC-address registration connected to the useraccount during that process. This in turn will provide you with an easy process for MAC-authentication and good userexperience.

IT_Girl,

 

It might be easier to just have a WPA2-PSK SSID for guests, then.

Is there not a fix for this?

No you would need to have ClearPass in place.
Thank You,

By default, a user on Aruba Instant will time out after 10 minutes of inactivity.  If you want to do something more creative, it will require an external policy server.
