In AOS, under what deployment scenarios RTLS server communication may not work?
When RTLS is configured, CAP/RAP communicates directly with the RTLS server.
RTLS will not work with current AOS with below deployments:
- CPSEC is ENABLED
- RTLS server is not routable from the RAP inner IP (irrespective of CPSEC)
When CPSEC is enabled both CAP/RAP falls under the role "sys-ap-role". This is a system default role which cannot be edited and as a result we cannot add any acl's to it so as to allow the traffic between the AP and the server.
With RAP in place(without CPSEC), it uses inner-ip to talk to RTLS server and if the ip is non-routable, then the communication breaks.
