Configuring MAPs 235
SSIDs are beaconed by default.
A MAP radio responds to an 802.11 probe any request only for a
beaconed SSID. A client that sends a probe any request receives a
separate response for each of the beaconed SSIDs supported by a radio.
For a nonbeaconed SSID, radios respond only to directed 802.11 probe
requests that match the nonbeaconed SSID’s SSID string.
When you disable beaconing for an SSID, the radio still sends beacon
frames, but the SSID name in the frames is blank.
Changing the Fallthru Authentication Type
By default, MSS uses WebAAA for users who do not match an 802.1X or
MAC authentication rule, and therefore fall through these authentication
types. You can change the fallthru method to last-resort or none.
To change the fallthru method, use the following command:
set service-profile name auth-fallthru
{last-resort | none | web-auth}
(For more information about network user authentication, see
“Configuring AAA for Network Users” on page 433.)
Changing Transmit Rates
Each type of radio (802.11a, 802.11b, and 802.11g) that provides service
to an SSID has a set of rates the radio is allowed to use for sending
beacons, multicast frames, and unicast data. The rate set also specifies
the rates clients must support in order to associate with a radio.
Table 19 lists the rate settings and their defaults.
