Optimize your RF spectrum and secure your network by blocking station-to-station communications. This feature blocks unnecessary local traffic such as broadcasts and also local peer-to-peer sharing to better secure your Wi-Fi network. This functionality was available previously at the global network level but blocking can now be enabled on any given SSID
From the Profiles top-level menu, select the profile associated with the specific SSID. Click on Policies and expand the Show Advanced panel for the given SSID under the SSID Policy. If you do not see the specific SSID in this panel, you should first add the SSID to the SSID policy panel.
