WLC P2P Drop No Longer Working on 7.4.121.0

Hi all,

We've recently upgraded to 7.4.121.0 from 7.3.101.0 and I've noticed that P2P drop action is no longer functioning. I am able to see and connect to all clients connected to the same SSID. I'm using netcat to open raw sockets. I searched for bugs related to P2P and found none. Can anyone else run a check to see if they are affected?

Daniel,

When your doing your testing, are the clients on access points joined to the same WLC?  This is how its suppose to work.... communication between two WLC will not block P2P.

Thanks,

Scott

Same SSID, WLC, & interface.

edit: Clients on same SSID, but different interface (using interface groups) can still communicate.

Peer-to-Peer is set to drop, what is Direct Client set to?

Wi-fi Direct Clients Policy is set to 'Disabled'. I'm still doing some testing. Right now, I'm on an SSID that uses interface groups. I'm able to communicate between clients that got stuck on two different interfaces. Still testing to see what happens on the same interface.

Looks like it blocks clients on the same interface, but if the clients are on two different interfaces in an interface group, traffic is allowed.

P2P blocking is having so many loop holes, It will work under restrictive conditions & you cannot achieve consistent results in many practical scenarios. (I have always kept it disabled )

Is it really required to block P2P communication among your wireless clients ? (if you are planing to use services like voice over wireless this is a feature you have to disable anyway)

It was a stipulation when the WLAN infrastructure was deployed. We're a university and wanted to limit the damage that could be caused by a student with malicious intent.

I would personally think looking at AVC (Application Visibility & Control) feature on WLC would be a better option rather looking at P2P feature.

It is available from 7.4.x code onwards
