NetSight Wireless Manager; versions 4.2, 4.3
for Enterasys (formerly HiPath) Wireless Controller
Performing the initial post-installation setup ("Server Setup Step 2, Change Network Settings, Change Server Network Interface (eth0) settings").
Configuring the IP Address for the Wireless Advanced Services (WAS) server, specifying a Subnet Mask of less than 24 bits and a Gateway IP Address ending with .255; for example:
- type "set network"
- set the IP Address (example 220.127.116.11)
- set the Subnet Mask (16-bit example 255.255.0.0)
- set the Gateway IP Address (problematic example 18.104.22.168)
The system editor issues error message "Error: Invalid value" in response to the given Gateway IP Address.
The editor incorrectly assumes that a terminating .255 always represents a subnet broadcast (not host) address, as it does when using a standard 24-bit subnet mask.
Upgrade NetSight Suite to version 22.214.171.124 or higher.
Pre-upgrade workaround: Use a gateway IP address having a different last octet value.
