Re: IAP

Hi your question is to have the IAP management IP to be static, if yes it can be done. I use DHCP first and once they are online, convert them to static according to your requirement.

Re: IAP

what if i have to configure 8 IAP on a new network and no DHCP on SW ,so to give every IAP Static IP and not need to run DHCP on IAP

 

does i must have DHCP on network ?

Does IAP have DHCP Server ?

 

i worked on IAP 93 and i cant give ip to AP and i cant open dhcp pool from the IAP ?

 

all my client need is to give every IAP static ip address and the user will get static ip address 

 

 

thanks for your help

Re: IAP

Hi

Each answer is written in RED.

 

  • does i must have DHCP on network ?

no - if the first instantAP unit u deploy will not get a DHCP , it will use internal static ip (connect a console - and u will see the address)

But , it much faster and easier to use vlan with DHCP on it. (if u dont got DHCP on that SW - u may use you LAPTOP as a DHCP server just for the provisiong time - use tftpd , here is a guide on how to configure tftpd to be a DHCP server - very simple:

  • Does IAP have DHCP Server ?

yes , it does.

Re: IAP

Hi,

you can give a static IP address to your IAP by stopping the boot process from CLI interface and doing this commands:

 

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

# setenv ipaddr <IAP IP>

# setenv netmask <IAP NETMASK>

# setenv gatewayip <IAP DEFAULT GATEWAY>

 

# save

 

# reset

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Re: IAP

The simple way is always the fastest way :)
M.gallina method is fast and will give u the ability to start and use your VC as a Dhcp server for the rest of the AP that in the same segment.
