MAC authentication on guest SSID using internal server without having splash page.


For SSID-type Guest, WLAN administrator to configure only MAC Authentication using internal server without having splash page.



Before 4.2, when WLAN administrator disables splash page, IAP would not provide an option to configure MAC authentication. Hence splash page had to be enabled to make use of MAC authentication even though there was no need for splash page. Starting 4.2, WLAN administrator can have the splash page disabled and still make use of MAC authentication.




Earlier 4.2:

Before disabling Splash page



After disabling Splash page



After 4.2:

MAC authentication shows up even with splash page disabled.
