Mesh Point to Point link with 1520 AP's problems

Hi All,

I'm trying to setup a PtP bridge link with two 1522 Mesh AP's and have had lots of difficulties getting this to work.

We have existing Mesh in another location connected to the same controller i'm using to manage the AP's for the bridge link. (So i know the Mesh controller works!)

Has anyone done this?

I have configured the near end AP (RAP with Ethernet bridging) and its joined the controller successfully. However the far end (MAP with bridging) joins the controller (i see it associate in the controller logs and comes up in Wireless --> AP detail) but then disconnects as it doesn't see a join confirmation from the controller. (taken form debugs on CLI of AP).

Any ideas or tips on this? Essentially all i'm trying to do is extend several VLANs across the bridge link to a switch on the other side hanging off the far end AP.

Any help is much appreciated!

Cheers - Rob

Just some more info on this one - this is basically what i have done:

(Running 4.1.197.. code)

> DHCP for AP is from a Windows server - Option 43 enabled.

> Primed both AP's so they joined controllers, set same bridge group name and same channel for 802.11a back-haul radio.

> set close end AP as Rap and enabled bridging.

> set far end AP as Map and enabled bridging.

> rebooted far end AP and connected to test switch as 'far end switch' (as it will now talk over the backhaul)

I assume the ports connected to the ethernet port on both AP's need to be trunked?
