managing client numbers connecting to an AP

Gday Everyone,

In a Lightweight AP environment, Has anyone ever managed to control number of clients connecting to an AP? or deny any clients connecting to the particular AP after a certain number of clients have already established an active connection to that AP?

Re: managing client numbers connecting to an AP

The below command on the WLC may help you.. but i am not sure that this is gonna work... but you can try once.. coz not even once this worked for me..

config advanced [802.11a | 802.11b] profile clients [global | ]  

Few days back configured for a single client and i was able to connect my second as well so here is the enhancement bug raised for the same issue.. the next or next to next release may have a fix. here is the bug ID..

CSCtj94508 -  There should be a way to limit the number of wireless clients that can associate to a lightweight AP. On autonomous APs, we have max-associations command.

lemme know how this answered your question!!

That would be a nice addition to the firmware.  Can't wait for this feature to be added to the next release!  +5
