Block P2P traffic on Cisco 5508 Controller

Unanswered Question

Is it possible to block outside P2P traffic on a guest wireless network using an ACL on the controller?  I know we can do it our firewall but the question came up so I thought I would post and see what everyone thinks.  TIA

What you can do is, to block P2P traffic inside a SSID.

Can be configured on a per-SSID basis.

I believe on the WLC under the WLAN you are referring to, click on the Advance tab and there is a P2P blocking action. I believe that will help you out with what you are wanting to do.




Thanks

Thanks to all who replied.  I already restrict P2P for the SSID.  I was curious about blocking internet/outside P2P.


Again Thanks!

Yes, ACLs can be applied to the WLC. I might suggest moving the ACL to the closest point, the FW if you are concern about internet traffic.
