RAP - PC - DHCP

I have a RAP-2WG.

 

The port E0 is connected to my router with DHCP.

The port E1 is connected to my PC.

 

My RAP receives an IP address but my pc never. I try to configure my RAP for the first time. Someone can help me?

You need to configure the e1 port profile / Wired AP under the AP group the RAP is assign to

 

Make sure that the VLAN you assign to the Wired AP exist in the controller

Re: RAP - PC - DHCP

I can see the RAP in my controller. The documentation tell me this:

 

The remainder of this text is taken from the Release 6.0 User Guide page 849.


Connect the RAP Ethernet port 0 to the modem connecting to the internet - Ensure the internet modem can provide DHCP


Connect your PC to the RAP Ethernet port 1 - Ensure your PC Ethernet port is set for DHCP


Open a web browser and connect to


http://rapconsole.arubanetworks.com/

 

This is good?

Re: RAP - PC - DHCP

When you use your browser it should redirect you to the rapconsole.arubanetworks.com or remote.arubanetworks.com

 

And then it should ask you to put the IP address of the controller

Have you added the RAP mac address to the controller whitelist table ?

Thank you

Re: RAP - PC - DHCP

The instructions you quoted would be for the initial configuration of the RAP in order to get it configured for the controller to connect to. Once the RAP has contacted the controller, it will download an updated configuration and overwrite that default. If you can see your RAP connected to the controller and online, then you've completed the initial steps successfully (or it was already configured to point to the correct controller).

 

The steps provided by Victor would allow you to configure the E1 port to either bridge over to your home network, or tunnel back securely to your RAP controller. You can use the screen shots that Victor provided to also verify the current configuration for the E1 port.

I retry the entire configuration, maybe I forget something.

Re: RAP - PC - DHCP

I connect the RAP on port 2.

 

I configure the port 2 with good vlan.

 

I add the MAC in the whitelist.

 

I see on my router the IP the RAP has.

 

After that, I try the http://rapconsole.arubanetworks.com/, I try the IP and I'm not able to enter in the configuration for the RAP.

Interesting have you try reseting the RAP to default factory just in case it had another config already.

Yes this is the first thing I do with the RAP.
