Additional information

The following section is for those options that require additional explanation.

name <name>

Name for the wireless network.

location <location>

Location of the wireless network.

max-retransmit

Maximum number of retransmissions for tunnel packet. Set the value between 0-64. The default is set to 3.

data-ethernet-II {enable | disable}

Enable or disable (by default) the use of Ethernet frame type with 802.3 data tunnel mode.

link-aggregation {enable | disable}

Enable or disable (by default) CAPWAP transmit hash calculation for selecting link aggregation slaves.

mesh-eth-type

Mesh identifier included in packets, especially useful if debugging is required. Set the value between 0-65535. The default is set to 8755.

fiapp-eth-type

Ethernet type for Fortinet Inter-Aceess Point Protocol (IAPP), or IEEE 802.11F, packets. Set the value between 0-65535. The default is set to 5252.

Multicast IP address for AP discovery. The default is set to 244.0.1.140.

max-clients <number>

Maximum number of clients that can connect simultaneously. The default is set to 0, meaning no limitation.

rogue-scan-mac-adjacency

Maximum numerical difference between an AP's Ethernet and wireless MAC values to match for rogue detection. MAC adjacency can be used to help with rogue detection, as AP WiFi interface MAC addresses are usually in the same range as its wired MAC address. LAN and WiFi network MAC addresses are matched when they are within a defined numerical distance of each other. Set the value between 0-31. The default is set to 7.

Base IP address for WTP IPsec VPN tunnel. The default is 169.254.0.1.
