Is the proxy set up as the gateway on the interface servicing the WLAN as well as the Management and AP Manager interfaces?

there any way to do that command in the web interface, becouse im remote admin the wlc.

when a wireless client navigate , the ip is change for the managment ip like a nat, i rode something like that:


"How does DHCP work with the WLC?

A. The WLC is designed to act as a DHCP relay agent to the external DHCP server and acts like a DHCP server to the client. This is the sequence of events that occurs:

Generally, WLAN is tied to an interface which is configured with a DHCP server.

When the WLC receives a DHCP request from the client on a WLAN, it relays the request to the DHCP server with its management IP address.

The WLC shows its Virtual IP address, which must be a non-routable address, usually configured as, as the DHCP server to the client.

The WLC forwards the DHCP reply from the DHCP server to the wireless client with its Virtual IP address. "
