Hello,

I wanted to know if it's possible to create a guest user account from a telnet session, on a Cisco 4400 Series WLC?
If yes, what commands are needed to create one?
I'm not a Cisco guru, but the thing is that I am making a guestbook application, and I want it to automatically create a guest user account for our guests when they write themselves in.

You mean you want to create a temporary user to access the tty sessions of the WLC?

No, I want to create an guest account access from a tty session.
Normally I need to logon to the webinterface of the WLC with a lobby admin account and then create a guest access account, but I want to know if it's possible to make the guest account from a tty session, and what the commands are for doing that.

According to the page I sent you, you can't create guest accounts through the GUI. You can only view them with: show netuser summary


This is a note from the webpage: "A lobby ambassador cannot access the controller CLI interface and therefore can create guest user accounts only from the controller GUI. "

Okay, is it then possible to create guest accounts from a tty with an account that has full access to the WLC?

As far as I can read, I don't see a way.

Okay, to make this crystal clear.
There is no other way creating an guest user account than creating it from the GUI?
It's not possible from a tty session and no other programmatic (API) way of creating it?

Not sure if this is what you are looking for, but this works for me:

netuser add test02 test02 wlan 3 userType guest lifetime 3600 description "test guest"

wlan 3 is the index for my guest network.  I'm running 4.2.205.0
