    Hi, 

     

    This is the scenario. 

     

    The controller has no PEFNG license, the controller does the routing for the client vlans. I mean the default gateway for the clients is on the controller.

     

    is there any way for to stop the clients from getting the webpage of the controller, if they put the default-gateway ip in the web-browser.

     

    The clinet ssid is WPA2-PSK, and get vlans assigned from the VAP. 

     

    regards,

    Unfortunately you can't stop this from the controller side if you don't have the PEF licenses.

     

    But if you have an uplink switch that supports ACLs you could do or an external firewall.

    In ArubaOS 6.3, the new ACL Whitelist feature (Configuration> Advanced Services> Stateful Firewall> ACL Whitelist) does not require the PEF license.  This can be used to block traffic to the controller:  http://www.arubanetworks.com/techdocs/ArubaOS_63_Web_Help/Web_Help_Index.htm#ArubaFrameStyles/Firewall_Roles/Policies.htm
