WLC user authentication and SSID broadcast

               Hi Everyone,

Need to confirm if WLC  is sending the ssid as broadcast or not?

Also if users connect if they get the ip from dhcp need to confirm how they are getting authenticated?

Regards

Re: WLC user authentication and SSID broadcast

Hi Mahesh..

In CLI "show wlan " tells you all the featured configured on that SSID. If it says "Broadcast SSID" feature enabled then it is boradcast & any user can see it. (see below)

(4402-3) >show wlan 4

WLAN Identifier.................................. 4

Profile Name..................................... Voice02

Network Name (SSID).............................. Voice02

Status........................................... Enabled

MAC Filtering.................................... Disabled

Broadcast SSID................................... Enabled

Also "show client summary " output tells you who are authenticated clients. See below

(WLC) >show client summary

Number of Clients................................ 29

MAC Address       AP Name           Slot Status        WLAN  Auth Protocol         Port Wired PMIPV6 Role

----------------- ----------------- ---- ------------- ----- ---- ---------------- ---- ----- ------ ----------------

08:37:3d:ef:01:51 10.10.6.244        N/A Associated     15   No   Mobile           13   No    No     Export Anchor

You need to post your show WLAN this will show you how that WLAN is setup for authentication. Open authentication means no encryption.

Hi Rasika,

If  we see below

Re: WLC user authentication and SSID broadcast

With respect to username you are correct.

But regarding authentication you cannot come to a conclusion like that, You have to see the full "show client detail " . Here is an example of PEAP authenticated client. Authentication algorithm open system does not mean user does not use password. Any EAP method  Authentication Algorithm show as open system, but still user has to enter their credential (except TLS where it is certificate based)
