Hi Declan,

there is no standalone mode but you'd configure an controller AP to provide service even the controller isn't available.

Here the GTAC article and 2 other posts that discuss this topic...

I think better way will be to place  EWC on virtual machine on laptop [free instance of Vmware player can do that]. You have full control of AP and it's really easy to use. You can check different AP's without need of console manipulations :)

The CLI on an access point is typically used for debugging and the thirdparty mode is not supported. Noted on the CLI ap shell... AP3715e 09.21.01.0179 interactive shell for service personnel only

If I get a v2110 vm spun up will it let the Ap join, would there be license needed or is there a trial period


Thanks
