Is there a way to see which of the connected clients supporting Management Frame Protection? Is there any Flag, Report or something other in the EWC to check that?

There is no way to see this in the GUI that I know of

You can see the client capability RSN IE in the M2 frame as part of the EAPOL exchange, not so easy I know.  Here is an example anyway:

Hi Gareth,

it would be nice that EWC can provide that via a report or an Flag at the Client Report. Because an admin do not know which client support this and which not. To check that via wireshark is to circuitous.

Currently an WLAN admin is relativly blind regarding this security option.

Are there any plan to enhance that ?

Hello Matthias

You would need to speak to your local sales team and have a feature requested opened for that.

Hi Matthias

Just to let you know I opened the feature request for you, you should have received a notification via email.
