VLAN probe report

FortiGates that manage FortiAPs have the ability to probe VLANs and subnets connected to an access point. Use the VLAN probe wireless tool to help troubleshoot why users cannot connect to the Internet.

GUI

To perform a VLAN probe in the GUI:
  1. Go to WIFI & Switch Controller > Managed FortiAPs.
  2. Right click a FortiAP entry, and select View More Details.

  3. Click the VLAN Probe tab.
    1. Configure the settings in the VLAN Range field.
    2. Click Start.

  4. After the VLAN probing is complete, the VLAN probing report appears in the summary page.

 

CLI

You can use the CLI console in FortiGate and FortiAP to perform a VLAN probe and view the report.

FortiGate

Command syntax:

diagnose wireless-controller wlac -c vlan-probe-cmd  <FAP Serial Number> <action> <interface ID> <start Vlan ID>  <end Vlan ID>  <retry> <timeout>

diagnose wireless-controller wlac -c vlan-probe-rpt  <FAP Serial Number> <interface ID>

Where the value for action is:

  • 0 — Start
  • 1 — Stop

And where the value for interface ID is:

  • 0 — All Ethernet port(s) of FortiAP
  • 1 — The 1st Ethernet port of FortiAP, eth0
  • 2 — The 2nd Ethernet port of FortiAP, eth1, if the hardware exists
To perform a VLAN probe in the CLI:

FortiGate-81E-POE (vdom1) # diagnose wireless-controller wlac -c vlan-probe-cmd  PS423E3X16000075 0 0 1  4094  2 10

 

Sending VLAN probe command to PS423E3X16000075: action=start wan-port=1 vlan=[1,4094] retries=2 timeout=10s

Sending VLAN probe command to PS423E3X16000075: action=start wan-port=2 vlan=[1,4094] retries=2 timeout=10s

Stop VLAN probing. You don't need to run stop command to get the probing report, only use it when you want to stop probing.

FortiGate-81E-POE (vdom1) # diag wi wlac -c vlan-probe-cmd PS423E3X16000075 1 0

Sending VLAN probe command to PS423E3X16000075: action=stop wan-port=1

Sending VLAN probe command to PS423E3X16000075: action=stop wan-port=2

To view the VLAN probe report in the CLI:
