Can the Aruba 3200 controller be configured to block certain mobile devices from accessing the wireless service. My wifi is setup in a school environment and while we do want to allow usage for students laptops for classroom sessions we would like to prevent users smart phones and other devices from accessing the wireless service. How can this be done?
Do we any encryption turned on or anything authentication enabled on SSID?
If the devices specific to Android or IOS we could block by configuring DHCP finger printing else we may need to relay only on ACL.
You could try blocking some of the chatty protocols SSDP, upnP,netbios traffic or on the air which would help in increasing WLAN performance
see for below example.
user-role <wireless user role name>
else simply enable the broadcast filters from VAP profile which wuuld drop the B`cast/M`cast on air however still arp,dhcp,VRRP will go through.
wlan virtual-ap <profile name>
