Access Point AIR-LAP1131AG-C-K9, unable to ssh and telnet

Access Point AIR-LAP1131AG-C-K9, unable to ssh and telnet. Though AP is registered, and can be seen on Controller. Can any one suggest, if there is anything else we need to do on this particular model.

AP is in different country. I

AP is in different country. I am trying to take ssh or telnet to this AP from far end, though it is our network, no issues related to network or security shouldn't be there.

SSH and Telnet are disabled

SSH and Telnet are disabled by default.  


Did you enable SSH and Telnet on a per-AP basis?


In Wireless LAN Controller

In Wireless LAN Controller release 5.0 and later, the controller supports the use of Telnet or Secure Shell (SSH) protocols to troubleshoot lightweight access points. You can use these protocols in order to make debugging easier, especially when the access point is unable to connect to the controller. You can configure Telnet and SSH support only through the controller CLI.

In order to enable Telnet or SSH connectivity on an access point, use the config ap {telnet | ssh} command. The Cisco lightweight access point associates with this Cisco Wireless LAN controller for all network operation and in the event of a hardware reset.

config ap {telnet | ssh} {enable | disable} Cisco_AP
