WLC 2504 can't access GUI...

Hi All,

I am not sure what I have been doing wrong, the 2504 itself only has 4 ports and no management port but I have heard it is actually port 1 (even though there is no labels for it). This is what I have done so far to try and access the GUI:

in CLI mode I have

1) put AP managament address as 10.151.55.129 255.255.255.224;

2) I have enabled adminmode on port 1 which I am assuming is management port and enabling admin mode is the same as "no shut" on switches I assume; here is the command I entered:

(Cisco Controller) config>port adminmode 1 enable

3) enabled HTTPS/HTTP via commands:

(Cisco Controller) config>network secureweb enable

(Cisco Controller) config>network web-auth secureweb enable

(Cisco Controller) config>network webmode enable

4) I then did reset system and checked that changes have taken place using show network summary as shown below. I have also enabled mgmt-via-dynamic interface to see if it makes any difference:

RF-Network Name............................. TEST_WIFI

Web Mode.................................... Enable

Secure Web Mode............................. Enable

Secure Web Mode Cipher-Option High.......... Disable

Secure Web Mode Cipher-Option SSLv2......... Disable

oeap-600 dual-rlan-ports ................... Disable

oeap-600 local-network ..................... Enable

mDNS snooping............................... Disabled

mDNS Query Interval......................... 15 minutes

5) I have setup my LAPTOP NIC to be 10.151.55.20 255.255.255.224 and connected it to port 1 on wlc 2504; but I can't ping 10.151.55.29 nor can I browse to https://10.151.55.29/. The port does appear up (green lights flashing on port 1 and laptop NIC also flashing).

Any help would be appreciated

Re: WLC 2504 can't access GUI...

If your connecting your laptop direct to port 1, then you need to untagged the management vlan. Right now you have that configured for vlan 10, you need to set that to vlan 0.

Then you will be able to ping the management interface and connect to it via the GUI.

WLC 2504 can't access GUI...

Hi Zahan,

(WLC) >config network webmode enable

(WLC) >config network secureweb enable


You must reboot for the change to take effect.

If you are still having the issue then try these 2 commands and check it.

config network mgmt-via-wireless enable

config network mgmt-via-dynamic-interface enable

Hope it helps.

Hi guys,

Hi guys,

I am facing one issue with cisco 2504 software ver 8.1.131.x, when am Enabling LAG on the wlc, the wlan interfaces are then mapping with the management interface which is untagged,

also if i try to tagged the mgmt interface, am not able to access the controller thru the network(meaning from the switch) . Attached snapshot

VIP Purple

Did you try to change those

Did you try to change those dynamic interfaces mapping after enabling LAG ? If not try it out.

It is better to start a new thread for your issue

Hi Rasik,

Hi Rasik,

I am having around 300, 3700i APs out of which 170 is showing on the 8510 wlc, the hindrance am facing is that those APs which are not associated with WLC is actually connected with their access switches and from the switch i am able to ping my DHCP server which is Infoblox, but the APs are not getting the IP address. I tried the switch port shut and no shut, verifed the dhcp scopes and option 43 on the dhcp server(infoblox), but still the APs are just powered on but not getting the IP address. I also tried connecting my laptop on the same AP port on the switch , the laptop gets the IP immediately.

Can anybody has any insight where am losing or i left somtheing to config/ verify on any concerned devices??

I tried putting console into the AP and a message appears as " WLC could not discover, Renewing DHCP IP".

But am not able to see the IP , which its renewing, can you explain what am missing exactly?

Those links are not for 2504; I can access GUI on other models of WLC via Service port but this one has none.

Thanks Scott that has solved it.

Re: WLC 2504 can't access GUI...

No problem. The issue is that your machine isn't tagging vlan 10 so the WLC is basically ignoring that packet. Now when you do connect it to the network, you should tag the managemt interface and make sure your trunking and allowing vlan 10.
