NetVanta 160/161 Sample Config - Basic Installation

Version 7

    Description:

     

    The configuration below provides basic recommended settings for NetVanta 160/161 Access Points.  The AOS access controller controlling the APs must be running R10.4.0 firmware or later for proper functionality. This sample configuration contains some security decisions which may be incompatible with legacy equipment, and a thorough understanding of WLAN security is recommended before making any alterations. Please note that many of the values should be changed to reflect the requirements of your specific environment. All values that should be entered manually will be surrounded by angle bracket, for example: <value>, and those brackets should be removed in the final configuration. Some of these values, such as the channel assignment, should be chosen from the listed pool of options. All other formatting methods should be followed closely to ensure proper configuration. Note that SSIDs and security phrases are case-sensitive. Also note that AWCP must be enabled on the controlling layer 3 interface of the AOS access controller. This is enabled by default, but if it has been disabled, it will prevent functionality.

     

     

    Commented Configuration:
