My situation is that I have captive portal with username/password fields before users can access the internet.
I would like to know those who are connected to the Wi-Fi (but are not yet authenticated) vs those that are connected to the Wi-Fi (and are able to use the internet).
In Aruba Central > Presence Analytics dashboard, we have the "Wi-Fi Connected Devices". I just want to know if these counts are talking about devices that are authenticated properly and are now able to access the internet?
Attached is what the Clients look like. I have 2 sample clients, both of which are tagged as "connected" to the Wi-Fi, but only 1 is able to access the internet (the other 1 I intentionally put invalid username/password).
Thanks for your reply.I figured as much, i noticed that the only difference is that column with the "External AP".
How about my question regarding Presence Analytics > Wi-Fi Connected Devices?Does this count only those that are 'authenticated' ?
If I not wrong I think you could distinguish a authenticated user with one who are just connected (but not authenticated) by looking at the user role affected to the user.
Look on your screenshoot :
Hope it is clear and answer to your question,
Ok thank you for your replies, hopefully we get an Aruba person to confirm this to us.

Nope. I pretty sure (but needed to be confirm by an Aruba guy) that it count all the Wi-Fi connected devices which means all the devices associated on an SSID.
