Client Isolation - Extreme Wireless controller


Hi Team,
Does anybody have any ideas of how client isolation can be achieved for users on the same SSID and in the same vlan in Controller. I know other manufacturers have a simple Client isolation feature that will achieve this but I can't find it in Extreme Controller.
My ultimate goal is "Users have to communicate only gateway not others".
Any ideas welcome..!!!

Hi Boopathy,

Please confirm, is it B@EWC or B@AP topology?

In the B@AP the "block MU to MU" does not work. You can create rule in Policy Role and allow only traffic destined to your gateway MAC and Broadcasts all other can be blocked.

Please check the policy rule configuration for B@AP setup,

MU to MU also doesn't work if the client are connected on the same AP.
