Does anyone know the capabilities / limitations of the following Cisco standalone APs?
- Cisco 1200
- Cisco 1300
- Cisco 1600 (newer)
Assume the latest available code release for each one.
Looking to do guest CP, OnBoarding CP, and basic 802.1X. I'm not sure the older 1200, 1300 can do much more than VLAN assignment, let alone external web auth redirection.

You are correct in your assumptions. It cannot do more than the capability of the device. Onboarding and Guest require a captive portal, so only if you have a downstream device to do the redirect for the captive portal, can you use the 1200, 1300 and 1600 for Captive Portal or Onboard. It may not be possible, based on your setup. Please check with your local Aruba SE so that he can dig into the details of this. In addition, if there is a bug in the AP code that is preventing certain capabilities, it probably will not be fixed. It is worth testing.

Thanks Colin. I think the work around will be to dump the cisco users onto a vlan that is untrusted on an Aruba controller wired interface and handle the clients from there.
