    Hello,

     

    I´m trying to understand why fordward-mode bridge is not avaliable on the web interface (blank). At the CLI is working perfectly.

     

    wlan ssid-profile "01"
        essid "01"
        opmode wpa2-aes

     

    wlan virtual-ap "01"
        aaa-profile "01"
        vlan 2972
        forward-mode bridge
        ssid-profile "01"

     

    Also, there are SSIDs on CLI that are no present on Web interface.

    I deployed a new VM and got the same issue.

    Bridge SSIDs are deprecated on controllers and can only be configured through CLI for backward compatibility reasons.

    This is a capture from a 8.2.1.0 VMC that shows bridge mode available through web GUI.

    gvala,

     

    Did you change anythging on VMC that would have changed this behavior?

     

    I have installed 3 time (including PoCs) and got the same issue. No bridge mode. Just on CLI.

    Just upgraded from 8.2.0.2. Nothing else.

    This option shows up when i tried to edit the WLAN. The drop down menu has four options: Tunneled, unencrypted tunnel, bridged and split-tunnel.

    I don't know what happens if i try to create a new WLAN because in this case I get a message that says that a PEF license is needed to add a WLAN

    I´ve just upgraded the VMC.

     

    Creating a WLAN requires a PEF license. Please verify that PEF license is installed and active

     

    Is PEF license required for creating WLAN? Is thar right?

     

    I thought LIC-AP would be enough.

    Hi Herman,

    I hadn't heard of that so went to chec some release notes.

     

    From the AOS 8.2.1.0 RN: 

    "Support for WLAN Forwarding Mode Options
    Starting from ArubaOS 8.2.1.0, new options, Split-Tunnel and Bridge, are added to the Forwarding mode drop-down list in the WLANs > General
    page."

     

    Can I conclude that bridge will still be supported going forward?  Or are we talking about something different here?

    Could you check and comment please?
