Guest account, how to limit time-of-day access

Answered Question
Mar 12th, 2010


I'm just starting out with Wifi/WCS and have a question regarding how to limit guest accounts access.

When creating a new guest account, you set start and end time +  end date.

Is there a way that I can force the account to be _only_ active between 8-5 PM (Normal working hours)?

Right now, I can only set start time + end time + end date.. That means that the guest account can be used 24/7 until the end date.

The WCS documentation doesnt mention anything like this. And google gives no help.


I have this problem too.

Others have asked than in the past for years and there is still no way to control that either in the WLC or WCS.  You can control that from your L3, but you would have to confgiure that for the whole subnet.

What about disabling the WLAN instead of the users?

Can't WCS do some kind of scheduled template? I could be wrong, but if so, maybe you can schedule the the wlan to be disabled at 5pm and another schedule to enable at 8am?
