Port uplink types

Uplinks disable management of the port, which means access is no longer controlled from the port.

Learned Uplink: The Uplink mode has been set as Dynamic and a device that is modeled in FortiNAC is connected on the port. All hosts read on this port are ignored.

Threshold Uplink: The Uplink mode has been set as Dynamic and FortiNAC has determined that the number of MAC addresses on the port exceeds the System Defined Uplink count. All hosts read on this port are ignored.

User Defined Uplink: The Uplink Mode has been configured as Always Uplink. These are ports the user knows are uplinks, but will not be converted to a Learned or Threshold Uplink. All hosts read on this port are ignored.

WAP Uplink: A Wireless Access Point (WAP) is connected to the port, causing the port to be set as an uplink. These access points represent controller-managed devices.

A WAP Uplink controls access from this port for the AP only. The port is managed based on the physical address of the AP. Port management for all other hosts is disabled.

After an L2 Poll, the Uplink status is removed from all WAP uplinks when the MAC address for the AP is disconnected from the port.
