Connect AP-175P console via Internet (ssh putty...)

Hallo,

 

We want to connect AP-175P on separate DSL network  from our office via Internet.

 

Problem is, that AP isn't configured to connect to public IP of controller and isnt synced with cotroller..

If I know public IP of AP (DHCP), could I connect via Putty to public IP with SSH port 22 for

changing IP of controller on AP???

 

Thank You

NO.

AP-175 can be accessible only via USB CONSOLE.

U can't SSH to the AP unit..to the IP of the unit  (part of the basic security)

 

regards.

Thank You,

 

Only way is to come to AP and change ip via console?

 

Could I find some advance sheets about preconfiguring ap via console  (change controller discovery IP) ?

 

Thank You

Re: Connect AP-175P console via Internet (SSH putty...)

Is this already being managed by a controller?  If so, you can "move" this AP to a different controller by re-provisioning it.  You can also change the IP (if it's static) as well by re-provisioning it.  

 

If you prefer the console, reboot the AP while you are connected via console and interrupt the process.  At the "apboot>" prompt, issue the command "printenv".  You will see all the variables present.  To change one, use the command "setenv" along with the variable and values.  

 

Then issue "save" and then "reboot"
