Does WiSM 6.0.196.0 suport AIR-LAP1131AG-N-K9 in H-REAP mode

Hello,

I have WiSMs running code version 6.0.196.0. I have to deploy AIR-LAP1131AG-N-K9 in H-REAP mode.

Q1. Does AIR-LAP1131AG-N-K9 require CAPWAP or can run off of LWAPP?

Q2. Does anyone know how to find out if a WLC is running LWAPP or CAPWAP?

Q3. If one has to convert LWAPP to CAPWAP, how is it done?

Thanks

Bo

Hi,

Q1. Does AIR-LAP1131AG-N-K9 require CAPWAP or can run off of LWAPP?

A1. The AP will run CAPWAP as soon the WLC is running a CAPWAP image. There is nothing special to do on the AP, once it joins the WLC, the WLC will check the image on the AP and if using a diferent one, the WLC will push the correct image to the AP that matchs the WLC version.

Q2. Does anyone know how to find out if a WLC is running LWAPP or CAPWAP?

A2. CAPWAP was introuduced in WLC version 5.2 and all versions above are running CAPWAP software.

If  your firewall is currently configured to allow traffic only from access  points using LWAPP, you must change the rules of the firewall to allow  traffic from access points using CAPWAP.

Make  sure that the CAPWAP UDP ports 5246 and 5247 (similar to the LWAPP UDP  ports 12222 and 12223) are enabled and are not blocked by an  intermediate device that could prevent an access point from joining the  controller.

If  access control lists (ACLs) are in the control path between the  controller and its access points, you need to open new protocol ports to  prevent access points from being stranded.

Q3. If one has to convert LWAPP to CAPWAP, how is it done?

A1. On the APs nothing has to be done. Once the WLC is running CAPWAP software, it will automatically push the corresponding AP software to the AP.

WLC runs CAPWAP if the software version is earlier then 5.2. WLC version 5.2 and all versions above are running CAPWAP software.

HTH,

Tiago
