Hello.

 

For example, i have a Wireless infrastructure. Some Rogue APs has been detected. My "legal" client connects to Rogue AP. Is it possible to disconnect him? If yes, how this feature names?

 

Thx.

Assume, that i have a guest client and he comes in to my building 1st time and try to connect to Rogue AP. Is it possible to manually activate de-association process for this client?

I would only do that with your own clients.  The FCC in the United States has ruled that there is a limit to what IDS functions you can do to clients that are not your own.  It is a very murky legal situation, so I would not do anything to any clients outside of your own.  http://community.arubanetworks.com/t5/Wireless-Access/The-FCC-has-clarified-their-stance-on-wireless-containment-but/m-p/226342#M46143
