Nov 6th, 2008

Hi All,

Just a quick one. If this timer expires when using web-auth on a guest wlan in the following way

PC --Ap -- WLC (campus) -- Anchor WLC (DMZ) --- www

Does the web session break and the user will be redirected to the web authentication page?

Many thx indeed,

The lobby ambassador can specify the amount of time that the guest user accounts remain active. After the specified time elapses, the guest user accounts expire automatically.

Hi there.


Thanks for the doc above. It has the info in there. Many many thx for your help.


The smaller of this value or the session timeout for the guest WLAN, which is the WLAN on which the guest account is created, takes precedence. For example, if a WLAN session timeout is due to expire in 30 minutes but the guest account lifetime has 10 minutes remaining, the account is deleted in 10 minutes upon guest account expiry. Similarly, if the WLAN session timeout expires before the guest account lifetime, the client experiences a recurring session timeout that requires reauthentication.
