I would like to configure a remote ap so that it will act like a bridge to the existing remote network. It will just require authentication (wpa2 psk) and then pass along any dhcp requests to the remote dhcp server. Is this possible? I have set the forward mode on the VAP profile to Bridge but that didn't do it, I am probably doing something wrong or maybe they don't work like this?
I am using a 3600 controller running os 22.214.171.124 and the remote AP is an ap-105. Thanks for any help with this!

Set the virtual AP to bridge and make sure the Virtual AP does NOT have a VLAN configured.

OK thanks! that was it, however now we are experiencing some issues with wireless devices trying to access services on the local network. The aruba AP-105 is in bridge mode (no vlan specified) and I can get out to the internet just fine. However when trying to connect to an apple time capsule(NAS device) from a wireless device it won't work. I can't ping a printer from a wireless device to the wired printer but I can print to it just fine. So for some reason all of the traffic isn't getting transmitted. The AP-105 has is in bridge mode, ssid is hidden, with wpa2 psk authentication. The role they are put in is the authenticated role. Any reason why I can't ping from wireless to wired devices?
