Association ACL Deployment Considerations

Before defining an association ACL configuration and applying it to a controller, service platform or access point managed WLAN, refer to the following deployment guidelines to ensure the configuration is optimally effective:

  • Use the Association ACL screen strategically to name and configure ACL policies meeting the requirements of the particular WLANs to which they apply. Be careful, however, not to name ACLs after specific WLANs, because individual ACL policies can be used by more than one WLAN.
  • You cannot apply more than one MAC based ACL to a Layer 2 interface. If a MAC ACL is already configured on a Layer 2 interface, and a new MAC ACL is applied to the interface, the new ACL replaces the previously configured one.
