Bas, you are correct. LWAPP, the AES encrypted Light Weight Access Point
Protocol, is a secure path for a ZoneDirector to manage APs under its control,
and to transport tunneled client traffic, from the AP wireless or wired interfaces.
It is not intended for other type of AP management.
You may open a browser, with limited display, to a local AP LAN port address of
a ZD managed AP.
L2TP was designed for management of standalone (not ZD managed) APs, thru
FlexMaster or similar NMS application, but we do not design our AP for customers
to put additional L2TP interfaces on them.
If you have a viable business reason and finances to convince Ruckus to pursue
your design feature request, please submit it thru your Account/Sales team.
You mention that the wired interfaces can be tunneled over LWAPP to the ZD as well, is that correct?
If so, that is the second functionality i asked for. To my knowledge it is not possible to tunnel a wired interface on the AP to the ZD using LWAPP but i am hoping i am wrong :-)
Having a management IP inside the tunnel for management would in our opinion bring an increased layer of security and manageability. Being able to tunnel a wired interface would be more beneficial to our concept though..
