An AP can be connected to an Active dCloud demonstration behind an endpoint router or directly through an active Internet connection.

  • Additionally, the direct connection requires CAPWAP ports open on the network.
  • When connected behind an endpoint router, the connection is automatic and does not require CAPWAP ports.
