Hi Douglas,

Yes you can configure mac filtering using local database instead of Radius.

The command to configure or add mac address in mac filter list is

config macfilter add

Have a look at this link


Also I believe max number of entries which you can add in mac filter list is 50.

Hi Douglas,

Just wanted to add a note to Ankurs good info;

Maximum MAC Filter Entries

The controller database can contain up to 2048 MAC filter entries for local netusers. The default value is 512. To support up to 2048 entries, you must enter this command in the controller CLI:

config database size MAC_filter_entry

where MAC_filter_entry is a value from 512 to 2048.

From this good doc;


MAC Filtering


Hope this helps!
