Hi Edward,

The main point is that timeout between AP message to controller and answer from controller (RTT) has to be less than 100 ms. Make sure your link allows that.

Then you can provision the controller IP address to your AP using:

- DHCP option 43

- DNS (CISCO-LWAPP-CONTROLLER host mapping to controller management IP address).

Hope it helps

Hi Jerome,

Thanks for your prompt reply.

Is it possible to assign controller ip statically on AP.

One more thing can we configured the AP to switch the local data traffic locally, instead of coming back from controller.
