Default values

Which default values you all guys change always and why?

 

For example

I normally change the value of the Max Associations to 25 or 30  which is per radio...

Why i change that ?

Because i think that sharing that small ammount of bandwidth is silly

 

What default values you recommend we should change and why?

Re: Default values

Good question/dialogue.

 

Off the top of my head:   I always

 

a) change the IPS settings for Rogue Containment up to  Wired Containment = yes and Wireless containment = Tarpit-all-stations.

 

b) Add voice aware scanning, beside video aware scanning

 

c) add Qos Profiles for Fair-Access to all AP-groups

 

 

.. more to follow.

Re: Default values

Yeah i also always add the QoS for Fair Access on all the groups

 

Ill search the other values you said... to see where i change them....

 

It will be good if we can all share this information, as we will deploy better configurations :)

Re: Default values

The scanning is under ARM profile.    The IPS is in the IDS category and Profiles.

 

Thanks for starting this thread!

Re: Default values

BTW, another thought on modification of defaults:

 

I always modify the IPSEC retries in AP-system profile.   360 is too high for my liking in most scenarios.   I chop off the zero and go down to 36 right away.  

 

With gather my thoughts with some more later today to minimize posting 1-2 at a time.

[ Edited ]

Let see if we can collect a lot of this and maybe we can create a list for everyone.

Like  a list of default values that are good to change to optimize the configuration!

 

Btw thanks i found the values you said... :)

Re: Default values

Jfernyc

Why would you want to reduce the time for this? which is the reason? i mean  this is the  Number of times the AP will try to create an IPsec tunnel with the master controller before the AP will reboot.

but why you would want it to be smaller to reboot faster? is there a reason fo rthis? im trying to undesrtand

 

Thanks in advance

Re: Default values

I modify this setting as the default will 'hide' or 'mask' problems with the WAN more than I want them too.

 

My approach is that if the WAN is sick it ought to be addressed, not band-aided ;)

Re: Default values

And two more for the 'list':

 

- Activate Dynamic Multicast Optimization (DMO) under Virtual AP

 

- Activate Band Steering, under Virtual AP

Re: Default values

Yes i always activate the band Steering

 

What about Multicast Optimization it is the one that says 

Multicast Optimization for Video?
