Access SSH to an LWAPP Access Point

Answered Question

Hello,

I have just one question about accessing the Access Point (in LWAPP) by using SSHv2.

I see when the AP start (in my case a 1242AG) that the SSHv2 is enabled but when I try to connect the AP by SSH, my SSH connection is dropped immediately.

My access point is connected to a switch (i.e: Cisco 3560).

And an other question about that... Why can I ping my LWAPP Access Point when connected to a switch and not when directly connected to the WLC (in my case a WLC 2106).

Many thanks and kind regards,

I have this problem too.

Jeff,

with 4.1 you can actually enable telnet or ssh by using this command:

config ap ssh enable

config ap telnet enable

But you need to set a username and password by entering:

config ap username password all

You can't connect to an LWAPP access point via telnet or ssh. You must console into the access point to use the CLI.

I'm not sure about the pinging issue. Controllers can ping access points, so maybe there's something on the wired network preventing the ping? Maybe an ACL or something similar.

Ah, thanks a bunch for correcting me. I definitely didn't know that they ever added that feature. And that was so long ago, too :/

5 points for the correction :)
