How to use SafeConnect enforcement without impacting network equipment

To ensure your network equipment (Routers, Access Points, Controllers, Switches, etc.) is not impacted while using SafeConnect, you can use one of the following three options:

  • Recommended setup:

    • Under Configuration Manager, you can bulk import the MAC addresses of the equipment into “Authorized Devices” with a role configured for compliant status and a description of network equipment.

  • If the recommended setup is not viable and the equipment has an entirely reserved subnet:

    • Under Policy Manager, you would want to create a qualifier for that Subnet and add that qualifier into Free Access.

  • If the recommended setup is not viable and the equipment does not have a reserved subnet:

    • Under Policy Manager, you can bulk import MAC addresses from a spreadsheet, or if MAC addresses are not possible, static IP addresses, into Free Access.
