Cisco :: 5505 - How To Hide SSID And General Security
Oct 11, 2012
how to hide Wireless SSID via Wireless controllers (one I am using is 5505)
Currently anyone can attmept to login to it as i cant find any options to hide it! Screen shot below)
what measures I should take to secure the APS and from access, currently considering port security and static mac addresses on ports; traffic is already got ACLS on its vlan. I have little to no experience on Wireless devices.
I have come across a new problem with our WAP4410N. I have set up multiple SSID's for various groups of people and guests at our company, the first and main SSID has set security properly at WPA2-Personal with a 63 character password. So I went ahead and setup the other 3 SSID's with the same security (just to initially get security going was planning on taking down one of them for guest account), but when I boot up my testing laptop, it shows that SSID's 2-4 have no security what-so-ever.
I have re-checked my settings in the Wireless Security tab and they are all still set with the passwords.
I am using: PID VID: WAP4410N-A V02Software Version: 126.96.36.199.
I have a Cisco AIR-AP1242AG-A-K9 Autonomous AP running firmware 12.4(25d)JA. I wish to set up multiple SSID's (2) each having their own separate security types. Both security types may end up being WPA2, but would have separate keys. I do not have a managed switch, the AP is connected to a "dumb" switch in an office environment, with no VLANS. Also this is only for 1 access point.
I have tried creating 2 SSID's, but my issue is that only one SSID will actually work at a time, meaning that only the native VLAN in the AP will actually allow wired traffic through it's SSID. How can I set up 2 different SSID's, with 2 independant security types and have them work simultaneously? Is this functionality supported by this AP?I feel that this is possible, as I can easily set this up on other access points from other manufacturers.
I have a new laptop and had a dlink DIR601 installed on an older laptop. I wasn't the one who got it set up originally but they did have me write down my SSID, password and security key. The dlink came with a cd but there is no cd rom on this laptop. I have tried reset, on line download (which only let me do the revisions). I have talked to a few people and they say it's easy!
I have a ASA 5505 that I test with which originally came with the Security Plus license. I recently erased flash and loaded the latest asa841-k8.bin version of IOS along with asdm-642.bin. Everything booted fine and came up as it does when freshly wiped however I noticed that i was now only running a base license. If I issue the sh activiation-key command, I noticed the following messages (full output is at the bottom):
The Running Activation Key is not valid, using default setting ...... This platform has a Base license. ...... Failed to retrieve flash permanent activation key
Did I somehow kill my Security Plus licensing when I did the erase flash? If so how do I recover it?
ciscoasa# sh activation-key Serial Number: JMXXXXXXHU Running Permanent Activation Key: 0x00000000 0x00000000 0x00000000 0x00000000 0x00000000
The Running Activation Key is not valid, using default settings:
Licensed features for this platform: Maximum Physical Interfaces : 8 perpetual VLANs : 3 DMZ Restricted Dual ISPs : Disabled perpetual VLAN Trunk Ports : 0 perpetual
This platform has a Base license.Failed to retrieve flash permanent activation key.The flash permanent activation key is the SAME as the running permanent key.
We use filter rules on an ASA5510 firewall to direct clients to a web filtering server which generally works very well. However lately we're finding that despite having more web filtering licenses than users, the web filtering licenses are being consumed up, mainly because of a recent increase in the rollout of ipads, iphones, androids etc. We could deploy a proxy server in the wireless DMZ to make all the wireless devices appear to web filter as a single IP, and apply a single policy, but that brings it's own problems. My question is: Is there a way to hide them all behind the interface IP instead, so that all wireless devices appear to the web filter on the LAN as the wireless dmz interface IP rather than the wireless device IP?
I have configured a L2L VPN on a Cisco 1841 ISR. I am statically NATing some of my internal hosts to IP addresses that are included in the encrypted traffic. Please note that not all of the internal hosts are being NATed. I am doing this to hid some of the real IP addresses on the inside network. I have confirmed that the VPN works, as well as the NATing of the VPN traffic. I have traditionally configured L2L VPNs on Cisco ASA 5500 series appliances, and this is my first attempt with the 1841 ISR. I just want other to take a look a see if I missed anything, or, could I have done some of the configuration more efficiently. All comments are welcome.
I Lease fiber between two locations, My operator limiting number of MAC addresses to 8 macs. Is there any possibility using some feature available in the Cisco 3750 switches to (hide mac addresses) encapsulate traffic witch flowing via operator network ?
I need to send data between locations with 1Gb/s speed. If 3750 switches can't do that, which models of switches 1 or 2U can do it. May Metro switches ?
I just want to know how or is it possible to hide sent/receive packets from the Router I cracked few days ago?I'm using wifi card airlive wl-1600 usb and the router is TP-Link.I mean how much is possible to hide my connectivity and everything from me with this router?
I know that when you surf the web, websites can log your IP & MAC address.If you get my jist, I don't want my laptop to be flagged on a few web sites I have been on.My plan is to use another pc, that has a wireless braodband dongle from a mobile phone company.The pc will be attched to the wireless router via Ethernet, but banned from access the web via the router. This way I can connect remotley from my laptop.
I have a program that connects to a game I play and does some actions on my game accounts (selling items etc).
I have set up several accounts to generate "income" in game and want to alter/hide the IP address shown connecting to those accounts so that my own IP is only associated with my main account. However it's an MSDOS program and I dont want to alter the IP shown/used for other programs on my pc.
Is there a way to alter the IP shown for specific programs only? And will it handle MSDOS programes?
I have a situation, where I dont need email and where is no SMTP server in this network, but I need CCO-access for EoX/PSIRT from LMS. Because both settings are in the same menu and LMS4.0.1 does real TCP:25 checking for given SMTP-server before can apply, I cant save my CCO-credentials. What can I do?
I'm using wireless iternet supplied by my roomate. They have the router and service, and have given me code for use on my computer. How do I hide my web history in a way that at least they don't know what it is if seen?
My internet connect works fine for hours at a time, then suddenly will get 7 or 8 General Failures while pinging (long enough to boot me off the net) then will be back to working fine immediately afterwards.Pinging 127.0.0.1 works fine. I've checked the firewall (Norton) and it has the default settings
C:Documents and SettingsLW>ping 10.1.1.1Pinging 10.1.1.1 with 32 bytes of data:Reply from 10.1.1.1: bytes=32 time=2ms TTL=64 Reply from 10.1.1.1: bytes=32 time=1ms TTL=64 Reply from 10.1.1.1: bytes=32 time=1ms TTL=64 Reply from 10.1.1.1: bytes=32 time=1ms TTL=64Ping statistics for 10.1.1.1: Packets: Sent = 4, Received = 4, Lost = 0 (0% loss),
I can access the internet just fine, but when I try to connect using a VPN It times out.When I ping the desktop in question, I get a timeout, and when I ping anything from the desktop I get "general failure".I've tried allowing echo responses through the firewall, and disabling the firewall, to no avail.
I am an accomplished developer in Microsoft technologies, however networking has always been my weak point. I have always managed to be in jobs where my lack of knowledge in networks has not affected me, so I have never bothered to learn anything.Are there any good books out that would teach me the basics of things like tcp/dhcp/vpn/dial up networks/routers and other netwokring terms.
I am have 3 machines int he house connected to the internet but one does not have internet access. It shows connected to the wireless network and from the command prompt there is an ip assigned to the laptop. But i cannot ping the gateway or any ip I get General Failure.
I think there is a problem with the settings on my router or something like that. When I watch videos on streaming sites the load bar tends to go up but only so far before freezing. If you slide the button along once the umbrella spinny thing gets going then the load bar will kick back into life again for a few seconds before freezing! The problem also effects downloads. Anything that takes longer the 5 or 10 seconds will fail. This has stopped me downloading simple things such as iplayer and flash updates. I know its not a problem with my computer as it effects all the machines that pass through the house. Were currently getting Virgin wireless broadband (so I dont think its a speed issue).A tecky friend of mine thinks it might be something to do with the 'packets' of information or the channel that my router is operating on
I named my network "abc," and the system appends "-guest" to it, i.e.., "ABC-guest", to use as the guest network name. I want to hide the name of the primary/private network completely. Why can't I do that? I know I can use a different password.
