Remote Aruba WLC and Aruba AP

Hi Team, I need some advise below:-

I have a small site Sales company which is in Jakarta, they have Aruba AP installed and configured. But the Aruba WLC is located in Penang main campus.

The AP will need to get the IP address (such as Guest/Employee Hot Spot/Normal Wireless) from the Penang WLC. When i check in the Aruba IP, the AP IP is 192.168.132.89 while the outer AP IP is 10.253.50.x where this is the Aruba AP management IP.

By the way, what's the meaning of Aruba AP IP and the outer AP IP?

Please advise.

 

 

 

Re: Remote Aruba WLC and Aruba AP

I assume these AP's are configured as RAP's? The outer IP would be the IP address assigned to the AP, such as eth0. The IP (sometimes inner IP) would be the IP address assigned from the RAP pool.

ACMA, ACMP

What do you mean by RAP?

Re: Remote Aruba WLC and Aruba AP

Hey, a remote AP is a RAP. This uses IPSEC to speak to the controller. A RAP would use an outer IP as well as an inner AP. If you want to provide the output of #show ap database we can confirm if the AP is configured as a RAP.

Re: Remote Aruba WLC and Aruba AP

Inside the attached, I can see that RA and RA2, what this means?

Why there is 2 types of IP - IP Address(192.168.x.x) and outer IP (10.253.50.x)?

Re: Remote Aruba WLC and Aruba AP

The outer ip is the local IP of the uplink or the APitself

Re: Remote Aruba WLC and Aruba AP

How to check in CLI whether the HREAP design is used in the wireless network?

HREAP is Cisco.

 

Easiest way to check to see if an AP is up as a RAP, is to run show user-table verbose and look to see if you have any VPN connections from the APs.
