Authentication for Guest Access

Hi, we are looking for a solution for either automated daily creation of guest user accounts or a console for clients enter their details which in turn creates the guest account on the controller.

If we go down the path of automation, policy requires a single username/password for each day, unfortuntely WLC scheduled guest account creation is not an option as the reocurrence doesn't change the password, but it would be a handy feauture if Cisco would like to introduce it in a future release

The CLI has the option to create 'config netuser add [name] [password] WLANID [X] userType guest lifetime [seconds]' - Can we schedule and email this from the CLI on the controller?

Appreciate your time.

Re: Authentication for Guest Access

Brendan,

Currently there is no way to automate this process. The process that has been developed is either an admin on the wlc/wcs creates the account or the use of the lobby admin feature. WCS has the lobby admin feature also to create accounts but it isn't intended for guest users to create their own account.

The wlc doesn't have a schedule to enter a command via the cli, but I bet you can developer some web base guest creation that would send the command to the wlc and remember that command to remove it later.

Re: Authentication for Guest Access

Thanks George, you come to the same result scheduling an account from the Guest User Schedule Template.

We can schedule the accounts ok (Doing this everyday is not an acceptable option for us) just need a magic button that allows Account A. to be active for X period with a Random Password generated each day. Doesn't seem a tall ask

We are just going to use the Lobby Admin for now.

Cheers,

Brendan
