Usage Guidelines

Usage Scenario

  • If the type of a VAP is set to ap-management, STAs connected to the VAP can only access APs but not network resources. AP management VAPs are used in STA access and AP management scenarios.
  • If the type of a VAP is set to service, STAs connected to the VAP can only access network resources but not APs. Service VAPs are used in regular WLAN deployment scenarios.
  • When the type of a VAP is set to authentication-server-down backup service, STAs can connect to the network through this VAP when access to the authentication server fails. You can run the vap-service-backup auth-server-down { active | inactive } [ vap-profile profile-name ] command to manually enable or disable an authentication-server-down backup service VAP.


After the VAP type is configured in the VAP profile view, the VAPs generated by the VAP profile use the configured VAP type. The new VAP type will overwrite the old one.

If the type of a VAP is AP management, the VAP does not support portal, MAC address and 802.1X authentication using an external server.

After the VAP type is set to management AP, change the STA's IP address to 169.254.2.x/24 (except, is recommended), so that the STA can access the AP.
