Q:

Why do we see Ethernet ports in  controller BSS table?



A:

Phy type showing from below outputs E1 and E2 are Wired port of AP (Secure Jack) .

1.The bss table is actually a tunnel table. In this case, we consider e1, e2, e3, etc as tunnel interfaces.

2. Both wifi and enet state is maintained by STM process. So CLI output shows whatever data is available in the same output format.
