    We have a Guest Network set up using captive portal and aruba central for authorization.  Its has been fine for our visitors but we just added another site that is part of our company and they have some devices like thermostats that need connected and was wondering if there was a way to have both the captive portal and mac authorization?

    Thank you

    You can, and this is how guest auth with mac caching works. You have to open advanced settings, and turn MAC auth on. It will use the servers set in the security profile.

    Dustin,

    That doesn't show up under my guest set up.  Here is what I see.

    Ahh yes, its not available when you are running cloud guest instead of an external server.

    Gotcha, Thank you for the update.  I will look at setting up an external captive portal.
