Cisco WLC onboard/guest issues

Running into 2 issues with cisco wlc v7.2.110.0


1-      Add switch IP. To have iOS automatically reconnect after OnBoarding, you have to pass the switch IP back. On the aruba controller you can do this in the captive portal config. I have not seen a way to do this in cisco.

2-      URL whitelisting – since cisco does basic IP based ACL’s, how can we whitelist apple and google play urls? I know we can put in the current IP’s but they could change any time


How have you guys tackled these in the past?

1.  You cannot do this with Cisco

2.  With Cisco WLC 7.2 and above you can use CNA Bypass:

Re: Cisco WLC onboard/guest issues

Hello guys,


This is the same concern I'm facing with CISCO WLC.


Is it posible to include www.appleiphonecell, URLs in cisco ACL or whitelist it? because we cannot use bypass Apple CNA as it is affecting other WLAN's behaviour in our environment.


Please help if you find a solution for this issue!
