Can AOS keep user/device after captive auth without the need to re-login for 1 week?

Hi Guys.

Can AOS keep user/device after captive auth without the need to re-login for 1 week? (With out CPPM using mac caching)

I found out the RUCKUS got a feature (on their controller) that called Grace period :

"there is an option called Grace period(Allow disconnected users a grace period after disconnection, during which clients will not need to re-authenticate).14400 minutes is the maximum."

 

Do Aruba got this feature emabbeded also on the AOS?

Waiting to hear from u..it's importent to me in order to push a sale.

 

Thanks.

The captive portal profile has a separate idle timeout parameter. Not sure if it will work for a week.

You would likely need Clearpass to have that long of a cached login period.

Re: Can AOS keep user/device after captive auth without the need to re-login for 1 week?

This seems to be a very poorely designed feature to my knowledge.

 

With out any L2 Auth, IP becomes the only identity of client and genrally DHCP lease will expire in 24 Hours. If the client gets a different IP address when it connects after say - 3 days, our assumption of CP only auth may not work, unless they have some more background configs like DHCP retaining the IP address for 2 weeks for a client. A lease period of 2 weeks looks unreaslistic.

 

So please check with your customer if its a real need or just someone asked them to ask & they are asking this.
