ISE and WLC for CWA (Central Web Auth)

Hello All,

As we know that WLC (i.e. 5508) does not support MAB (MAC Auth Bypass) and it supports CWA in 7.2.x.

CWA is a result of successfull MAB. So how CWA work for wireless? So it means WLC support MAB?

ISE and WLC for CWA (Central Web Auth)

Hi,

The term in the wireless world is mac filtering. so when mac filtering is triggered you will return the CWA portal in the access-accept.

Remember to set your condition in the authentication policy to continue if the user is not found, so the device can hit the default CWA rule.

Thanks,

Re: ISE and WLC for CWA (Central Web Auth)

I've been playing around with this and have it working on 7.3.101 on the WLC 5508, however, I don't seem to be receiving the web redirect correctly.  When I look under the client connections on the WLC I see that the URL is received on the WLC from ISE, but it appears to be truncated, unless that's just a limitation of the display.  I see hits on the ACL-WEBAUTH-REDIRECT ACL on the controller, but it doesn't seem to be redirecting.  I have this similar configuration on the wired side of the house and it works fine.  ISE just shows pending webauth, as it should.

Hi,

Can you post the screenshot of your acl. Also can you post the screenshot of the advanced settings. Also are you in flexconnect mode?

Not running in FlexConnect mode for this WLAN.

David,

Please permit the dns and also allow full access to ISE (for testing purposes) and you redirection should work fine. With wireless the behavior is a bit different from the wired where you have to deny any "exempt" redirection traffic.

Give that a shot and let us know how it goes.

ISE and WLC for CWA (Central Web Auth)

Tarik,

I do have similar issue.I have configured a WLAN on my WLC and trying to setup ISE central web authentication...

do have similar ACL setup on WLC and have the authorization profile on ISE pointed to the redirection.

I get connected to internet without redirection to web auth and on ISE authentications, it shows as pending..

Please help

Thanks

Re: ISE and WLC for CWA (Central Web Auth)

Central Web Authentication

In the case of Central Web Authentication (CWA), the web-authentication occurs on the ISE server. The web portal in the ISE server provides a login page to the client. Once the credentials are verified on the ISE server, the client is provisioned. The client remains in the POSTURE_REQD state until a CoA is reached. The credentials and ACLs are received from the ISE server.
