    Direct question ... I am not aware of these devices ...

    I have found at home an Aruba Ap 224 ... and I want it to work,
    -It is already prescribed by Telnet
    -I have done everything I have found on the web
    and there is no way that I can see a wifi or that it works as an AP ... the device is with the green flashing light and the Ehrt0 is working, I see it on the network as (, but it does not open web neither with 4343 nor with anything ... I managed to connect to it by telnet ... (I reset it following steps on youtube) and continue like this
    Summary .. Intermittent power light and Lan0 light working, I see a network but I do not see the web interface to enter .... no wifi or anything ... just Telnet saying this in booting :

    That is not an Instant AP, so it requires a hardware controller to function, unfortuately.  An Instant AP Model Number would be IAP-224

    Any opinions expressed here are solely my own and not necessarily that of Hewlett Packard Enterprise or Aruba Networks.

    As Joseph already replied this is Campus AP and not Instant AP. You can convert it to Instant if you have access to the Mobility Controller or Virtual Mobility Controller with AOS > 8.5 I think.

    Mobility Controller is a peace of hardware that runs Aruba OS operating system. >8.5 means that version of operating system should be greater than 8.5.

    Virtual Mobility Controller is virtual appliance that run Aruba OS. Same thing like Hardware appliance, but can be run on VMware or Hyper-V. You also need licenses to run it and some knowledge to set it up and configure it.

    You can install it under windows if you have Intel cpu, VMware player and enough RAM.
