Hi all

when setting up an lwapp acces point, do I need to trunk all the vlans on the port to the ap? or do I only need to enable the management vlan to the acces point ? ie 1 vlan and normal access port ?


cheers

If its a LWAPP AP, then the switchport should be a ACCESS PORT.. this is just to get the IP address to the AP, then the AP wil try to join the WLC.. once the AP joins, the SSID and rest flow through the LWAPP tunnel..

Unless you are doing HREAP with more then 1 SSID. Then it would be a trunk ...
