Captive portal and MAC authentication

  • 1.  Captive portal and MAC authentication

    Posted Apr 02, 2013 07:09 AM

    Hi,

    It looks like I have an issue when I'm creating a Guest WLAN and using the captive portal.

    I would like to "bypass" this portal for specific MAC addresses. 
    I have enabled the option, added the mac@ as username & password, but i still have the portal page.

    Also, do you know if it is possible in this portal to only include the banner ? without the email field ?

    Thank you very much.

    Thank you for your quick answer, unfortunately I'm running on IAP-105 without controller.

    Thus, I don't have all these settings,

    This is what it looks like:

    Again thank you, this article is exactly what I'm looking for:

    https://arubanetworkskb.secure.force.com/pkb/articles/HowTo/How-do-I-configure-Captive-Portal-with-MAC-authentication-on-an-SSID-in-Aruba-Instant

     

    Unfortunattely, I'm not able to choose the "Enforce MAC auth only role" in the role based access role.

    The only option I have are "Network Based" or "Unrestricted". ( I'm using the internal database).

    It looks like this option is only there when I use an external database server.

    *Contain a working method*

    Well the second method is working properly, but it doesn't really match what I'd like to do.

    1 SSID: - A captive portal with legal notice for users (without auth.)
                   - unrestricted access with mac @ for printers, ...

    I guess the only way to do this is to go with a radius, or to user 2 diffrent SSID.
