Bypass guest portal for specific MAC address

Currently users on the guest wireless are redierected to the aruba captive portal and have to enter a u/p to connect.  If I wanted to allow a certain MAC address to access our guest network and bypass the captive portal how would I go about doing that?  Is it even possible?


TIA

Yes.  you can do that through mac authentication.

 

In the ArubaOS user guide, chapter 19 details how to do mac-based authentication.

Re: Bypass guest portal for specific MAC address

I am having a similar issue and can not get this to work.  I have some clients that I need to bypass the splash/log on screen of my captive portal.  I followed the instructions from the user guide and still get the splash screen.

Use user derivation rules.
