Configuring LocalNet Users

Answered Question
Feb 11th, 2014

  • Cisco Employee,

In the link below I see where there is a 24 character limit for localnet users.  However, the only time you get an error when trying to add a user(s) w/ more than 24 characters is from the CLI(the GUI doesn't give an error)

http://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/td/docs/wireless/controller/7-4/configuration/guides/consolidated/b_cg74_CONSOLIDATED/b_cg74_CONSOLIDATED_chapter_0101111.html


Questions::

1) What authentication type(s) can be used on the WLAN to use these localnet users?  LEAP, EAP Fast....  what else?

2) If from the GUI a localnet username with more than 24 characters is used, can it login?

Rob,

You can use the local net user for WebAuth also. It also fails if you create a password larger than 24. I tried it with a password of 30 characters.

Scott,

Please try if you will to create a user with more than 24 characters via the GUI then try to login using that ID.

For me, if I was doing my Webauth correct today, it worked!!!  which is totally messed up::::
