Re: mac filtering problem

Mac filter are part of controller database, which is either 512,1024 or 2048.

Using the cli to configure Mac filtering :

First run this : config wlan Mac-filtering enable wlan-id

Config mac-filter add Wlan-id [interface name] [description] [ IP address ]

Hope it helps

Thak you,

but in WLC you can't apply mask like 0000.00ff.ffff .  In know how configure mac address filter, but WLC don't support filtering mac by OUI.

How can i filter all range of mac address ?

HI Nicoles,

What exactly you want to do :

You want to add MAC address ?

Under Security Policies > Layer 2 Security, check the MAC Filtering check box.

This enables MAC authentication for the WLAN.

1. Click Security from the controller GUI, and then click MAC Filtering from the left side menu.

2. Click New in order to create a local database MAC address entry on the WLC.

3. In the MAC Filters > New window, enter the MAC address, Profile Name, Description and the Interface Name for the client.

4.  Click Apply.

As per my knowledge Filter of all range of mAC address is not avilable in WLC. You can do in WCS/NCS/Prime iNfra.
