AP1242AG: Telnet and http accesses:


I can not telnet the AP1242 and I can not use its web GUI. I do not find the commands to enable Telnet and HTTP (such as "config network telnet / webmode" of the WLC2006). Does anybody provide them.

AP1242 releases are:

* Cisco IOS Software, C1240 Software (C1240-K9W8-M), Version 12.3(11)JA1, RELEASE)

* BOOTLDR: C1240 Boot Loader (C1240-BOOT-M) Version 12.3(7)JA1, RELEASE SOFTWARE )

* LWAPP image version

Thanks by advance. Best Regards,

Re: AP1242AG: Telnet and http accesses:

Hi, i belive there is a mistake, since the LWAPP only should work with a wireless lan controller.

When the LWAPP turns on it locates the WLC by an arp request, and the controller set's up all the configuration on the AP. You can not configure a LWAPP true TELNET or HTTP.

If you only need an AP you should practice a downgrade on your AP to make it work as an autonomous AP.

Check it Here.......

Hope it helps!!!!

Re: AP1242AG: Telnet and http accesses:

Hi Paul,

I understood that the lightweight AP is monitored by a WLC (I use a WLC2006). I am setting up a test-bed and I intended to use telnet and / or http to display traces and check configuration directly from the AP without connection to the console port. I will do it (at least for the configuration) through the WLC.

Thanks for your answer.

Best Regards,
