Web Authentication

I have a need to set up a guest wireless network for some class rooms in our office. We have about 50 new users coming through every week and the administrator doesn't want to have to create 50 new guest user accounts each week.

I'd still like to have some form of authentication on the network. Is there a way to allow multiple users to authenticate to a single web auth user ID? This way our administrator would only have to create one user per class instead of 50.

Or alternatively, is there an easy way to generate 50 users at a time?

Thanks!

Re: Web Authentication

I have a similar need, 1 guest account which services multiple users (100+ in some cases). It looks to me like the 4400 controllers only support 8 simultaneous logins per account (security | AAA | user login policies), which is a bit of an issue for me.

Set it to 0 which makes it unlimited. Hope this helps!

Security -> User Login Policies

Re: Web Authentication

It should be under the local net user or else you can configure it on the cli: config netuser maxUserLogin 0
