Wireless Network Manager 3.5 Administration Guide

General

At the top of the screen is the Name of the policy and the SSID Group it applies to. Default Policy, at the top of the hierarchy, is the policy that is always in effect, no matter which other policies are applied for a particular SSID. It is an automatic attribute of the Tenant/Group through the access points used in the hierarchy, and it applies to the entire hierarchy.

Next is the choice to enable or disable SSID Isolation Under NAT Mode. This feature allows clients to be isolated even when they connect to the same SSID. It also isolates the clients between SSIDs.

The last field is for the Time Zone.

QUICK VIEW OF SSID GROUP - gives a list of the SSIDs in the group, with a table of configurations applied to them. These are explained below:

  • Band Selection - You can change the band for the SSID.
  • CFS - Content Filtering Service is a web filtering security service that blocks inappropriate, unproductive, and illegal or malicious web content according user specifications. The table shows if this service is active on the SSID or group of SSIDs.
  • Capture ATP - Capture Advanced Threat Protection is a cloud-based feature that analyzes files and determines if the file is malicious or acceptable.

  • SSL VPN - This selection enables or disables SSL VPN.
