Environment   This article applies to all IAPs running or higher version and managed by Aruba Central cloud based solution.



An interfering AP is an AP seen in the RF environment but is not connected to the wired network. While the interfering AP can potentially cause RF interference, it is not considered a direct security threat, because it is not connected to the wired network. However, an interfering AP may be reclassified as a rogue AP depending upon whether it is detected on the Wired network as well.

To check Interfering AP related logs, follow these steps:

  1. Navigate to Monitoring> WIDS.  On top you would find the total number of Interfering APs detected.


      2.Navigate further down the page, to view various logs related to Interfering APs and other threats under WIDS events. The Type field shows the AP classification as well as various types of attacks on the network.
