Hi all,

Is there anyone know what is the command for enable "Connect even if the network is not boardcasting" with Aruba Wifi Auto-Configuration Tool ?

Thanks

That checkmark is when the SSID is hidden.  If you want to hide your SSID, 

 

(config)# wlan ssid-profile <name>

      (config)# hide-ssid

 

I would recommend against this practice however.  Is there a reason you wish to do this?

Our customer want to hide the SSID base on their security policy.
And they want to let the wireless users can setup the wireless profile on their device with one click.
They create the bat file with the command as below:

ArubaWifiCfg_Vista.exe -add /SSID:WiFi /Authentication:WPA2 /Encryption:AES /EAPType:PEAP /InnerAuthentication:GTC /EnableFastReconnect:TRUE /ValidateServerCert:FALSE >NUL


But it won't enable "Connect even if the network is not boardcasting".

Group policy is the best way to do this.  The autoconfiguration tool does not have that switch.

 


Group policy does not have an EAP-GTC option.  Are you also using EAP-GTC?

Yes, we're using EAP-GTC.
