Re: WLC and syslog broadcast from AP

by default, the LAPs send log infos to the broadcast address, 255.255.255.255. you should set this to your syslog-server, so that can be unicasted.

config ap syslog host global 1.2.3.4



otherwise your LAP-network will be flooded with broadcasts if something odd happens.

see also "Wireless LAN Controller (WLC) Configuration Best Practices" for details on this hint and other things that you possibly "should set".

I haven't heard of this before.  Can you post the error message?

very good!

I tried to find a similar command on the GUI but I didn't find.

I thank you very much
