    Hello,

    in some small branch offices connected with L3 network, I need to have local forwarding for guest ssid and local resources.

    I have the virtual mobility controllers in the datacenter, can I configure the campus AP to forward in local teh guest network and remain up also without controller?

    If not possible with CAP, can I convert the AP305 or 304 in rap and use it? it should have a controller dedicated? or can I use a controller already in the cluster?

    Any AP can be configured as a RAP, just some APs (such as the 505H) have a better form factor suited to being a RAP (e.g additional ports, desk stand etc).

    You have a few options depending on the firmware running on the AP and if the AP is in either CAP or RAP mode. Take a look at the WAN Link Failure for Campus APs or the Remote-AP Operation if using a RAP.
