Configuring MAC-based filters on an MSM317
This option lets you control port access based on client station MAC addresses. Addresses
are checked against one or more lists stored on the controller. If the MAC address of a
connected device appears in any configured list, then the device is permitted to send and
receive traffic on the port.
To configure MAC-based filters on an MSM317 switch port, do the following:
1. Open the management tool on the MSM7xx Controller.
2. Select Controller >> Authentication > MAC lists.
3. Select Add New MAC List. The Add/Edit MAC list page opens.
Each entry in the MAC list contains a MAC address and its associated mask. By varying
the mask, an entry can be defined to match a single address or a range of addresses.
4. Under Global, specify a name to identify the MAC address list.
