How can i convert an AP105 as remote-ap from apboot prompt.

Hi, I have an AP105 at a very far location. there is a lot of timeouts when AP is downloading the mips32.ari from the controller.

 

The AP doesnt seem to appear on the controller.

 

One of my friend told me long back, about converting a normal campus ap as remote-ap, through a command from apboot prompt. unfortunately i dont remember the command..

 

could someone share, if you are aware of steps.

Setenv master x.x.x.x
Setenv remote_ap 1
Save
Boot

That is for a certificate based rap. It will still need to download it's firmware from the controller if need be.

I will go a bit further and give you this : 

 

setenv remote_ap 1 (this changes the AP to a Remote)
setenv master x.x.x.x
setenv group default (or replace default with the ap-group you want)
setenv serverip x.x.x.x

//If you need to set a static IP
setenv ipaddr x.x.x.x
setenv netmask x.x.x.x
setenv gatewayip x.x.x.x
saveenv
printenv
boot

Correct.  Remember you still need to add to the RAP whitelist and have a NAT pool.
