Detect and Block Rouge access points.


I need some information on detecting and blocking rouge access points on the Aruba 7005 controller. Is there some additional license needed to use this feature? I was reading about RAPID but as of yet I do not have a lot of insight into it.

Can you give us some more details? 

Are you trying to block APs that are plugged into your network or neighboring APs? 

Detection will happen without any additional licensing. Some containment features require RFProtect.

Re: Detect and Block Rouge access points.

We are trying to block neighboring AP's. What I am actually looking for is something similar to Cisco where I can see rouge AP's which I am not able to see on the Aruba controller.

Please be aware of local laws that could make rogue AP blocking illegal:  http://community.arubanetworks.com/t5/Unified-Wired-Wireless-Access/The-FCC-has-clarified-their-stance-on-wireless-containment-but/m-p/226286/highlight/true#M46120


With that being said, please see the wireless intrusion detection chapter here:  http://www.arubanetworks.com/techdocs/ArubaOS_64_Web_Help/Web_Help_Index.htm#ArubaFrameStyles/New_WIP/New_WIP.htm%3FTocPath%3DWireless%20Intrusion%20Detection%7C_____0 to see what can be configured.
