AP-205 Wireless Access Point - Disable (Hide) Guest Account

  • 1.  AP-205 Wireless Access Point - Disable (Hide) Guest Account

    Posted May 30, 2023 11:32 AM

    Hello,
    We have a location that has a AP-205 Wireless Access Point. We have a Secure and a Guest account configured. We would like to disable or hide just the Guest account, so that it is not an option when users open the list of wireless accounts available on their computers. Is there a way to disable or hide this account through the web interface? After the above-mentioned networks, I only see Edit, and an "X" which I assume removes the account. Can anyone suggest the best plan of action?
    Thank you.

    Sorry, but I didn´t catch it.
    Where do you open the list of Accounts on their computers?
    Where are those accounts configured?
    do you have a controllerbased or controllerless solution?

    I just want to hide one account after I logon to it, accessing with the AP IP on the Aruba Instant Victual Controller. I think I have found it (see attached). If I select Hide, no one will be able see it or open it. Thanks.

    This "Hide" means that the Wi-Fi SSID name is not visible. Not that Clients are anonymized. Hiding an SSID is no security mechanism!

    Then I can just disable it, right?
