AP3805i don't register with V2110 Controller


Userlevel 2
When trying to register my AP3805i Accesspoint on my remote site that is connected via PPTP Tunnel at my V2110 Controller, I don't succeed. Accesspoints are shown in the AP List, are approved, set the right MTU size (checked with ping), are pingable (both ways), but when i check the TCP Dump of the Controller i see the AP sending ?Discover? and then try to Register 5 times (both WASP Protocol) but there is no answer but another ?Discover? from the Admin interface of the controller.

My Topology is as follows: admin interface 10.10.89.1 Gateway 10.10.89.2, PPTP Tunnel 10.10.89.2-10.10.89.200, physical 10.10.88.1, 10.10.88.x routed, IPs at the remote site 192,168.15.xxx routed, no masquerading (NAT), B@AP untagged for the wireless setting

what did i misconfigure that the AP doesn't get online

help would be really appreciated!

AP registration on the "Admin/Mgmt" interface is not supported.

You need to register the AP on one of the ESA ports - make sure that you checkmark "AP registration" on the interface.

Hi - thanks for your reply! I activated AP registration and MGmt traffic on the physical 1 interface - didn't mention that sry. At the AP i set the cs auth ip manually to 10.10.88.1. when i inspect the Discover Paket sent from the controller to the ap the AC IP is also 10.10.88.1 br Peter

Are you still experiencing issues? If so do you have a route that is not via the admin port default gateway that points to the AP's 192.168.15.x ie via esaX?

Could you please do a advanced ping from the controller GUI to the AP IP.

As per below screenshot put in the target IP = AP IP, checkmark "Use specific source interface", choose the interface that is used to register the APs in the pull down menu.

Please let us know the results.

Hello Peter,

Are you all set with this issue? Did you get this sorted out?

Hi! - not really any progress so far - going to set up a new admin network address now and check if that changes anything

All,

thanks again for help - finally entering a manual route that was not the standard gateway of the admin network solved the issue!
