hello

we have a printer with a wireless nic installed -the objective is to connect to a Wireless guest network 

this wireless guest network is already in production providing internet services to contractors 

the Guest network is configured for the MAB protocol with credentials relayed to a login page for access

can I use the printer mac as username & password  to get access to the network ?

The redirect won't work for "headless" devices such as your printer. The typical implementation is to put the printer MAC address into an endpoint identity group and then have a check for membership in that group prior to the redirect authorization rule. You can put it in manually (fine for just a few devices) or profile it and have the profiling policy put it in automatically (requires a bit more work to setup and Advantage license level but scales well to hundreds or thousands of devices).
