HREAP Mode and Monitor

Hello,

I am wondering if I configure an AP with HREAP, will it still do the moniroting also? (The same fonctionnality as Monitor mode)

Thanks

Re: HREAP Mode and Monitor

yes, the HREAP AP will still spend sometime off channel to scan for rogues, as it does in local mode. It's just not as efficient for finding rogues as a monitor, since e monitor AP does not serve clients, and only scans.

HTH,

Re: HREAP Mode and Monitor

You only can choose one mode, so either h-reap or monitor.

FYI

Q. Do we still have the same WAN restraints on monitor mode APs as we do with regular APs and H-REAP APs? That is, do we require a 100ms or better RTD between the controller and a monitor mode AP?

A. No, monitor mode AP does not have the 100 ms restriction because there is no client association, which is the reason for the restriction. The 100 ms latency limitation was created out of varied, and often stringent, client authorization requirements, which is why both local mode and H-REAP APs have identical latency limitations. Obviously, monitor mode APs do not have the same client limitations.

Re: HREAP Mode and Monitor

Scott, thanks for your reply.

I do know that I can choose only one mode at a time! I may need ro rephrase my question. I would like to know if I choose h-reap, will AP be able to provide "monitor" functionnalities (ex. detecting the rogue APs) as well or not?

Thanks,

Mehdi
