DHCP Addr. Assignment - Required WLC

Guys, Can anyone tell me what this means?

I take it to mean that the security policy will not pass untill the user has a DHCP address? Is this correct?

Many thx all,

Ken

You are correct.... This only allows traffic from users who have obtained their ip address via dhcp. On the flip side, enabling this has caused issues in which certain clients may not connect even if they have dhcp. Also ARP errors have been known to show up in the logs.

If you really want to use this feature, go ahead and give it a try. If you have more problems when enabled, then you know this feature isn't going to work for you.

I have seen this in some Cisco docs that it is not best practice not to have this enabled.

Re: DHCP Addr. Assignment - Required WLC

Hi... about this option:

              DHCP Addr. Assignment

 

Anyone know if this option could cause the TCP RST for end devices?

 

Thanks
