You can make an AP operate as a rogue detector, which allows it to be placed on a trunk port so that it can hear all wired-side connected VLANs. It proceeds to find the client on the wired subnet on all the VLANs. The rogue detector AP listens for Address Resolution Protocol (ARP) packets in order to determine the Layer 2 addresses of identified rogue clients or rogue APs sent by the controller. If a Layer 2 address that matches is found, the controller generates an alarm that identifies the rogue AP or client as a threat. This alarm indicates that the rogue was seen on the wired network.
