Random Clients on authlist

We are seeing a bunch of clients connecting to the network and listed as un-authorised. I suspect someone has guessed the network number. what is the solution in this case?

Yeah, probably the network ID got leaked somehow, or there is someone with an algorithm generating random network Ids and trying them out to see if they are public.

You can either, delete the unknown clients, or if your setup isn’t very complex, create a new network and move your existing clients.

Ok, I was worried about the unknown clients that have the status ‘online’ even though they are not authorised – see attached document.

As long as they’re not authorized, they can’t talk on the network. The Last Seen column saying ‘ONLINE’ just means that the node has tried to contact the network controller about that network within the last few minutes.

Thanks for the prompt reply.
