Guest accounts in WLC lobby admin


We have a Cisco WLC based wireless network and provide a guest network for visitors. Currently we are using the built in lobby admin tool to create guest accounts, but it is very limited. The password auto generation gives you a popup in Internet Explorer with no way to copy the password and it is not possible to show a summary page or similar for printing (that I have found). This means that the receptionist usually ends up giving the visitor a handwritten post-it note with the username and password. I’m looking for some tool that can simplify this, basically a slightly better interface that can present a page with the username and password for printing.

Is there any way to do this with the WLC, or any 3:rd party tool that can achieve this?

I know that the WCS/NCS has this functionality, but it’s a bit expensive just to be able to print guest account information.

Guest accounts in WLC lobby admin

Hey Bjorn,

Unfortunately, the solution you are looking for is in fact provided in WCS/NCS/PI.  With that said, I am not aware of any way to do this through the WLC or any other 3rd party tool.
