Description

The anyspot client probe suppression feature decreases network traffic by suppressing probe requests from clients attempting to locate and connect to other known networks.

Syntax

Parameter

Description

clone <profile-name>

Make a copy of an existing anyspot profile.

enable-anyspot

Issue this command to enable the anyspot feature. Note that you must associate the anyspot profile with a virtual AP profile for the settings to take effect.

exclude-essid <exclude-essid>

An anyspot-enabled radio will not respond to client probe requests using an ESSIDExtended Service Set Identifier. ESSID refers to the ID used for identifying an extended service set. in the Exclude ESSID lists. To add an ESSIDExtended Service Set Identifier. ESSID refers to the ID used for identifying an extended service set. to the list, enter the full name of the ESSIDExtended Service Set Identifier. ESSID refers to the ID used for identifying an extended service set., then click Add. To remove an ESSIDExtended Service Set Identifier. ESSID refers to the ID used for identifying an extended service set. from the list, select it and click Delete. ESSIDsExtended Service Set Identifier. ESSID refers to the ID used for identifying an extended service set. from neighboring APs will automatically appear in this list as long as the anyspot-enabled AP can detect that ESSIDExtended Service Set Identifier. ESSID refers to the ID used for identifying an extended service set..

exclude-wildcard <exclude-wildcard>

An anyspot-enabled radio will not respond to client probe requests using an ESSIDExtended Service Set Identifier. ESSID refers to the ID used for identifying an extended service set. in the Exclude ESSID list. To exclude ESSIDsExtended Service Set Identifier. ESSID refers to the ID used for identifying an extended service set. that partially match a text string, enter that string then click Add. To remove a matching string from the list, select it and click Delete.

no

Remove or negate any configured parameter.

preset-essid <preset-essid>

The anyspot-enabled AP will not send an ESSIDExtended Service Set Identifier. ESSID refers to the ID used for identifying an extended service set. in beacons, but if a client sends a probe request without an ESSIDsExtended Service Set Identifier. ESSID refers to the ID used for identifying an extended service set. (that is, the probe request is not looking for a specific network) then the anyspot-enabled AP will respond to the probe request with an ESSIDExtended Service Set Identifier. ESSID refers to the ID used for identifying an extended service set. from this list.

Usage Guidelines

When an AP is configured to use this feature, the anyspot AP radio hides its configured ESSIDExtended Service Set Identifier. ESSID refers to the ID used for identifying an extended service set. in beacons, and compiles a list of other ESSIDsExtended Service Set Identifier. ESSID refers to the ID used for identifying an extended service set. from detected neighboring APs. If the client sends a probe request without a specified ESSIDExtended Service Set Identifier. ESSID refers to the ID used for identifying an extended service set., the anyspot AP will respond with a preconfigured ESSIDExtended Service Set Identifier. ESSID refers to the ID used for identifying an extended service set..

When a client searches for a preferred network, that client sends the SSIDService Set Identifier. SSID is a name given to a WLAN and is used by the client to access a WLAN network. of the preferred network in the probe request. The anyspot AP checks to see if there is a neighboring AP using that ESSIDExtended Service Set Identifier. ESSID refers to the ID used for identifying an extended service set. that can respond the client's request. If no matching network is found, the anyspot AP sends a response to the client using the SSIDService Set Identifier. SSID is a name given to a WLAN and is used by the client to access a WLAN network. from the client request. If the client is authorized to connect to the anyspot AP, that client associates to AP. Once connected to the anyspot AP, the client recognizes the ESSIDExtended Service Set Identifier. ESSID refers to the ID used for identifying an extended service set. to which it is connected as one associated with its preferred network, and does not send out any further probe requests.

Example

The following command defines a ESSIDExtended Service Set Identifier. ESSID refers to the ID used for identifying an extended service set. to be returned in probe requests that do not contain an ESSIDExtended Service Set Identifier. ESSID refers to the ID used for identifying an extended service set., as well as two ESSIDsExtended Service Set Identifier. ESSID refers to the ID used for identifying an extended service set. that should be excluded from anyspot responses, in the event that a client is probing for one of these excluded ESSIDsExtended Service Set Identifier. ESSID refers to the ID used for identifying an extended service set..
