max managed FAP

Hi, I am reading about Fortigate Platforms and I don' t understand, why in Max FortiAPs (Total / Tunnel) there are two number? Which number should I take into consideration when I plan build my wireless network? Could you explain it to me?

Hi, Its based on what mode you run your SSID -> Bridge or Tunnel For bridge look at Total For tunnel mode, look at Tunnel

Just to expand a little.. Let' s take a 60C model which shows 5/10 FAPs by default are in normal mode, normal mode can handle both Tunnel and Bridge SSIDs, so on the 60C you can add 5 FAPs, anything more can' t be managed. In order to connect 6-10 you' ll need to change the FAPs to remote mode: #configure wireless-controller wtp #edit FAP11Cxxxxxxx #set wtp-mode remote #end Remote mode FAPs will only accept bridge mode SSIDs.

When replacing AP' s I have encountered that even though you replace physically, the unit will still take up one of the " normal" slots and you have to change it via command line to remote to get it able to use a tunnel mode SSID.

Your local bridge in the config. Users connected to the SSID, the access point is connected to the interface will receive the IP. Tunnel mode in the config. I have created the SSID will take the user through the IP
