"It Depends" to use a quote from Neil Reid. You can configure guest access several ways. The mobility controller anchor methd is one of the most commonly used. This requires you to configure a guest ssid that utilizes a mobility anchor controller that resides outside the firewall. The traffic on this ssid is tunneled to the mobility anchor controller on an EoIP tunnel. Refer to the Mobility Anchor Configuration guide

Yes, this requires a dedicated controller but is the most effective method.

Proxy can be pushed down via dhcp option. Guest access however will not work if proxy is configured. Users will not get a login page.... they will have to turn off proxy and then open a browser to get the login page. Login to the network or hit accept and then the user will have to turn on proxy. No work around yet.
