Can ACs automatically deliver configurations to APs


Currently, ACs cannot deliver configurations automatically, so configurations must be manually submitted and delivered. Alternatively, you can also restart an AP to obtain new configurations, which, however, may interrupt services.

Automatic AP upgrade
In automatic upgrade mode, an AP checks whether its version is the same as that configured on the AC, SFTP, or FTP server during login. If the two versions are different, the AP upgrades its version, restarts, and goes online again. To reduce service interruption caused by an AP upgrade, the FTP or SFTP mode is recommended. Automatic AP upgrade during login: [HUAWEI] wlan [HUAWEI-wlan-view] ap-update mode ftp-mode [HUAWEI-wlan-view] ap-update ftp-server ftp-username admin ftp-password cipher wlanadmin [HUAWEI-wlan-view] ap-update ftp-server max-connect-num 5 //The default value is 50. [HUAWEI-wlan-view] ap-update update-filename new.bin ap-type 10 //Specify an upgrade file for the AP with type 10. You can specify upgrade files for multiple APs, and can also add APs to regions.

Can I upgrade a specified AP
For V200R005 and earlier versions, you can only batch upgrade APs of the specified type or APs of the specified type in the same AP region. During AP login, if the software versions on the AP and AC are different, the AP is upgraded automatically.

How many APs can be managed by an AC
The maximum number of APs managed by an AC is as follows: AC6003: 48 AC6005: 128 (versions earlier than V200R006C10); 256 (V200R006C10 and later) AC6605: 512 (V200R003); 1024 (V200R005 and later) ACU2: 2048 By default, the number of APs managed by an AC (without license loaded) is as follows: AC6003: 4 AC6005: 4 AC6605: 4 ACU2: 128

Configuring NAT on a WLAN device
You can configure dynamic NAT, static NAT, or a NAT server.
Dynamic NAT allows dynamic establishment of mappings between private and public IP addresses so that intranet users can access external networks.
Static NAT implements one-to-one mapping between private and public network addresses.
A NAT server allows external users to access internal servers.
You can configure a NAT server on the web platform or CLI of an AC or a Fat AP.
- Configure NAT for an AC on the web platform as follows:
On the web platform, choose Configuration > AC Config > IP > NAT, click Create, and set related parameters.
- Configure NAT for a Fat AP on the web platform as follows:
On the web platform, choose Configuration > AP ConfigIP > NAT, click Create, and set related parameters.
- Configure NAT for a Fat central AP on the web platform as follows:
On the web platform, choose Configuration Central AP Config IP > NAT, click Create, and set related parameters.
