VRD remote Networkikng

by MVP MVP ‎08-26-2012 08:12 AM

Okay it would be a nice adding on this VRD for the cases when you got remote branches but OVER a private WAN interface, which is a common case...  What would be Aruba recommendation for this specific Scenario? it would be nice to see it on this VRD or in some VRD(as far i have been reading i didnt see this specific case on any VRD and if im wrong please guide me to the correct VRD to read it adn well sorry :) )


As far i understand the Remote AP is good  used in scenario in when you want traffic coming back over the internet from a non-private-wan connected site


Now what would happen with  the private wan connected site? well as far i read and i remenber i read on the forums that in this case you would use a campus ap but in  a bridge mode(if you didnt want to tunnel back all the traffic)


If im correct it would be really nice to see that on the VRD

At least i use  a LOT the VRD tool when clients ask me why i want to do that or this in this way  and its just easy to tell them well because is what aruba recommend and you have document  from aruba to prove your point! which is really really helpful! i think the VRD are one of the BEST thing i have seem of aruba :) 

And of course it do help me to do it in the correct way...

EAP TLS deployment guide

by MVP MVP ‎08-23-2012 09:29 PM

it would be possible to have a step by step guide for EAP TLS deployment?

I have seen many of EAP PEAP guides  around here but what about EAP TLS?

Its a bit confusing the part of Server though....

I had a couple of these delivered (orderd by someone on leave) and was unsure what the difference was between the 2 models.  I would love to see it in that PDF for it to simply say that the RAP-3WNP has PoE.  If you look at the specs you can see further down that the specifc model has PoE but only when talking about power consumption.  Why not put that on the line where is says "It is also available with an 802.3af power-over-Ethernet (PoE) port for IP phones or other devices."


Make it read something like:

"It is also available with an 802.3af power-over-Ethernet (PoE) port for IP phones or other devices (Model:RAP-3WNP).


I know this may seem trivial, but when you are remotely provisioning these for someone and you don't know what the model differences are and they have a VoIP phone it is helpful to know if you are going to need to order them a power injector or not.

Do you use the ArubaOS MIB Reference Guide? How is it helpful to you? What topics could be added to this guide to make it more helpful?

Hi -
Are there plans to update the Pre-Deployment Guide for "Indoor Access Points: Site Survey & Planning"? The current version available from the VRD share references Aruba RF Plan. I'd be interested in seeing one for VisualRF.

The ArubaOS Command Line Interface Reference Guide currently lists all commands in alphabetical order.  Would you find the CLI Guides more useful if the commands were instead sorted into groups by command function or feature, or is the book easier to use when it the content is presented as a simple alphabetical list?
