WCS logs for Guest accounts

Answered Question
Jan 15th, 2009

Hello,

Are there any logs on the WCS that can capture the MAC and IP address of a Guest client ?

The idea is to have this information available in order to correlate it with the Web server logs. It seems that the WCS logs capture only the MAC address

of a Guest client.

Are you aware of any settings for any logs that would enable logging of both the IP and MAC address for guest accounts ?

Thank you in advance

Best Regards,Pan

I have this problem too.

In 5.2 take a look at the guest user session report:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/wireless/wcs/5.2/configuration/guide/5_2reps.html#wp1117029

Guest User Sessions Report

The Guest User Sessions report shows historical session data for a guest user such as amount of data passed, login and logout time, the guest IP address, and the guest MAC address.

The session data is available (by default) for one month after the session event occurs. This data retention period is configurable from the WCS background task settings page.

This report can be generated for guest users who are associated to controllers running software version 5.2 and above.
