Anchor Controller setup

Guest Anchor specific setting

In our Cisco WLC setup we ask you to setup the following external redirects for Pre and Post authentication –

When the user hits the pre-authentication redirect the controller adds two pieces of information to the end which are the called station ID and the calling station ID (AP base radio MAC and device MAC address) and this is how we recognise the call coming into our platform and serve the splashpage back to the user. In guest anchor mode the called station ID is never sent to us so instead we ask you to hardcode a MAC address into the Preauth redirect which would be your burned in MAC address of your controller and would look something like this –**

XX-XX-XX-XX-XX-XX**:Controller Mac Address
