Any initial configuration required on AP unpacked from a box
No, You dont need to configure anything on AP(ZeroTouch Configurationg ). But make sure you have a DHCP pool on swicth from where AP can get IP address as well as the ip of the WLC.(Just check the last answer in point 4). Try to keep AP and WLC management in same subnet.
How the traffic flow from a wireless connected user ? user--AP--switch--WLC----server or user--AP--switch---server
This port is used exclusively for Out-of-Band management. It is the only port that is active when the controller is in boot mode (useful for troubleshooting). The service port does not support 802.1Q tagging so you must configure the switch port on the other side in access mode. It does not support a backup port and a default gateway in its configuration. This last fact means that you can reach it only if you are on the same subnet (as it will not have a route back) unless you configure static routes in the menu Controller -> Network Routes.
***The service port and the management interface must be on a different subnet.The service port is also not auto-sensing so you must use the correct straight-through or crossover Ethernet cable to communicate with the service port.
Normally I use only one port for management and all other purpose.(You can also use sperate ports...).
I have DHCP on WLC for guest access, or you can have on DHCP server.
If you have firewall (I dont know about bluecoat).
You can use authrize function WLC and add the mac of the AP in it. Then only that AP will join which have the mac address in the auth. list.
