AP801 Tips For OnPlus

Portal Feature

The AP800 series access point is discovered through CDP, ARP, DHCP, and CAM table lookup. The access point will always send out CDP, even if you disable it. Thus, CDP is the primary discovery method, and the others add more information.

Access/Device Information

Regardless of whether access credentials are provided, the device's MAC address and IP address are discovered.

If the AP800 series access point has SSH access, and Level 15 credentials are entered under Access > Login and Access > Enable in the Device Information window on the portal, the device information collected will include Serial Number, PID/VID, device type, and model name. No description is set.

Device Configuration Backup and Restore

The backup of an AP800 Series access point consists solely of storing a copy of the startup-config file. Other elements, such as users defined in the AAA database, are not backed up.

To restore the configuration, the saved file is copied to startup-config, and the access point is rebooted, loading the new configuration.

Backup and restore both require device access credentials (login and enable access).

Upgrade Firmware

The AP801 is an IOS module that shows up as a separate device in the portal Topology. The firmware image is not a normal IOS .bin file; it is a tar package that contains the IOS image and the HTTP access files.

During a firmware upgrade, the files get untarred onto the flash in the directory specified in the tar file, the old load directory gets removed, and the boot environment variable gets set so the access point can boot up properly.

Remote Access

The normal web access will not work. If you have CP Express loaded on the router, it will try and load that program up and run it. This is a Java program and does not work properly through the HTTP tunnel that is being created.

Remote access via the OnPlus Portal is possible with one of the following methods using a Generic tunnel connection:

• •

- To get a CLI prompt, use port 22. Once the tunnel is opened, copy the link into your SSH program and make the connection.

- To get a http access, use port 80 and once the tunnel is opened then copy the link into a new browser tab and point it to this url http://<ip addr link with port>/exec.
