DNS

I need to set the DNS for the Guest network so that I can set it to the Open DNS family friendly DNS servers and restrict guest access to particular websites. Can this be done on any of the InstantOn access points?

I also have this kind of problem, but I didn't find a place to configure when I configured it. I can only pop up the portal and I can't make restrictions.

@QUuickpath  You have a few options here. You can set the DNS server on the AP and everyone behind the AP will use Open DNS. Or you can set the Guest Network to External in options and that will use a different DHCP server where you can set the DNS.

Re: DNS

Where in the device can you set the DNS?

@QUuickpath  From your main page click on inventory then click on you AP and from there click on the advanced tab and this is where you can assign a static IP address, Gateway, and DNS.

Ok.  Got it.  However to be usefull each SSID must have it's own independent settings.  Here is what need to be available before we can deploy any of these devices.  1) Each SSID must have it's own DNS and bandwidth controls  2) For the Guest SSID, we need to have a landing page after the terms of agreement are accepted (this is required by most corporate hotel chains) 3) Client isolation option for each SSID 4) Password and Encryption options for the Guest SSID.

@QUuickpath You may want to take a look at our Aruba Instant AP line.
