[WLAN Controller] Disconnect Client PC in AP

Hi Guys,

How can I disconnect client PC from AP using Wireless LAN controller 4402? I can only disconnect my APs but not the client of AP.

Thanks in Advance.

You're not the only one who's busy! :)

When you choose to "CONTAIN" an AP, client or something, this means that up to 4 of your LAP will take a round-robin approach and transmit a massive amount of de-authenticate packet to the poor bugger. Basically, it's a DoS and the target will be unable to authenticate to your wireless network until you lift the containment. So make sure you want to do this.

From the main webpage, Ad-Hoc rogue. You'll find the wireless MAC address of your target client. Click on this. In a new page, you'll find a number of drop-down menus. Choose "external", "malicious" and choose the number of APs and then you choose Contain.

\Hope this helps.

You mean BAN the client your "disco" for a short duration?

If you want to BAN the client the you have two options: MAC ACL or, my favorite, CONTAIN.

And thanks for the ratings. If you want to undo the containment, go to Ad-Hoc and choose either Unknown or Friendly, external and this will un-contain the client.
