WISM Blocking UDP traffic

Unanswered Question

I am having a problem with the WISM blade blocking UDP traffic on port 6001. This is for a Sentinel Hardware Key. The software sends out a UDP request but it appears that the controller just drops it. I have tried an explicit permit ACL on this network for all UDP traffic. This did not work either. This software work fine on the wire. Anyone else seen this?

I have this problem too.

Unless a ACL or other filter is applied the WiSM will not block any traffic. Can u see any logs which indicate the WiSM dropping packets on port 6001?

All layer two broadcasts (FF:FF:FF:FF:FF:FF) are stopped at the WISM. This is a function of the controller. I found a white paper from Cisco stating this. The hardware key I was trying to use, utilized a layer two broadcast and it was stopped at the controller. There were no ACL's present when I started testing. I even tried it with an allow all ACL just to make sure.
