VAP, Profiles

Hi all,

 

 

Im new to Aruba , and need to know the following please :

 

- what is VAP? is it same as SSID?

- For each ssid created, we have to create all profiles regardless if it doesnot require 802.1x or AAA profile?

- Do we have to create or assign a user role on each ssid?

 

Thanks,

A VAP is a Virtual AP.  It has everything you need to broadcast a wireless network, including the network name, encryption, and authentication if necessary.  Every VAP requires a AAA profile;  Only some types of Virtual APs require a 802.1x profile.  You assign the initial user role in the AAA profile.

 

You should take a look at the Aruba Solution Exchange article (support login required) on how to create an SSID here:  https://ase.arubanetworks.com/solution/name/generic_ssid_non_snippet/

 

If you do not have a login, you should look at basic configuration in the document here:  http://www.arubanetworks.com/pdf/technology/DG_WLAN_Base_Configuration_ArubaOS31.pdf
