An access list is a set of rules that governs how the controller manages access to the public
and private network resources. You can create multiple access lists, each with multiple rules,
enabling you to create public areas on your network that all users can browse, and protected
areas that are restricted to specific user accounts or groups.

In the following example, access lists are defined to allow the following levels of access:
Unauthenticated users can access Network 1.
Authenticated employees can access Network 2 and the Internet.
Authenticated guests can access the Network 3 and the Internet.
The public access interface
The public access interface is the sequence of Web pages through which access-controlled
users can log in, log out, and view the status of their wireless connections to the public
access network. By default, these Web pages are hosted on the controller's Web server.
However, pages can also be hosted on external servers for added flexibility. The pages, error
messages, images, and workflow are all customizable.
Standard pages are provided for common tasks such as login, service purchase, and display
of session information. As well, advertisements can be displayed if required.
