Dear List,


I was wondering if there is an error on the Cisco documentation below.


The diagram and config shows the LWAPs attached to the switch on vlan 5, but the trunk to the WLC is pruning vlan 5.


If this is correct, how can the LWAPs speak LWAPP with the WLC?


The suggested config is a few lines below the diagram.


Thanks for any feedback.

The AP's management is on vlan 5, so there is not reason to have vlan 5 allowed on the trunk to the wlc.  Only interfaces that are configured on the WLC should be allowed.


Management, AP-Manager, and any dynamic interfaces... service-port can be included but shouldn't be routable.


Hope this explains it... if not let me know:)
