Access SSH to an LWAPP Access Point

Hello,

I have just one question about accessing the Access Point (in LWAPP) by using SSHv2.

I see when the AP start (in my case a 1242AG) that the SSHv2 is enabled but when I try to connect the AP by SSH, my SSH connection is dropped immediately.

My access point is connected to a switch (i.e: Cisco 3560).

And an other question about that... Why can I ping my LWAPP Access Point when connected to a switch and not when directly connected to the WLC (in my case a WLC 2106).

Many thanks and kind regards,

Re: Access SSH to an LWAPP Access Point

Jeff,

with 4.1 you can actually enable telnet or ssh by using this command:

config ap ssh enable

config ap telnet enable

But you need to set a username and password by entering:

config ap username password all

Re: Access SSH to an LWAPP Access Point

You can't connect to an LWAPP access point via telnet or ssh. You must console into the access point to use the CLI.

I'm not sure about the pinging issue. Controllers can ping access points, so maybe there's something on the wired network preventing the ping? Maybe an ACL or something similar.

Re: Access SSH to an LWAPP Access Point

Ah, thanks a bunch for correcting me. I definitely didn't know that they ever added that feature. And that was so long ago, too :/

5 points for the correction :)

Re: Access SSH to an LWAPP Access Point

Hello,

Thanks for your quick answer.

I have forgot to add my WLC version (5.1.151.0).

So globally, your commands work. Just for the user to login into the Access Point where it is : config ap mgmtuser password secret all|ap name.

Many thanks & regards,
