Airwave and ClearPass



I would like to understand the concept to build the firewall rules. I need some help with that. My setup is as below:


Clearpass mgmt --- firewall -- airwave

clearpass data -- firewall -- airwave


some documentation says that ClearPass alwayse initate connection through data port if it is configured. 


I would like to integrate ClearPass with Airwave so from the ClearPass log you can click to Airwave portal and follow the user in Airwave.


I have to write up the firewall rules but not sure if it is 


Airwave -- Clearpass mgmt -- 161

clearpass data -- airwave -- 162




Airwave -- Clearpass mgmt -- 161

clearpass mgmt -- airwave -- 162




Airwave -- Clearpass data-- 161

clearpass data -- airwave -- 162


if some one please explain that will be huge help. 


Thanks in advance.

Re: Airwave and ClearPass


link explains data and managment port usage.


Allows both 161 & 162 ports on your firewall,  161 port is used by Airwave for snmp get/set operation where as 162 port is used to receive CPPM syslog and events in Airwave.
