OAW-AP1221

Post by diablonet » 28 Oct 2019 15:27

Hello all, I got six OAW-AP1221 used devices, and I plan to use the as my home access point, but on the AP configuration it says "AP is managed by Omni Vista now, the Web Management System is not allowed to use.", is there a way I can use those APs?, do I require Omnivista? can they work as stand alone A?,in case NO, how much do the license cost for just 6 devices? how can I buy license? thank you so much in advance.

there are two modes to manage this APs.
express mode: one of the AP is a virtual controller. It is responsible to send the config to all the other AP.
enterprise mode: the config is done via OmniVista for all the AP

You best choice will be express mode. Maybe the APs have had found the way to the internet during the first comming up (dhcp server has given gateway). So they have connected to the cloud version of OmniVista (OV cirrus).
To avoid this the next time: make sure that the AP can get IP via DHCP, but should not have internet access. Than factory reset them .....

if I remember correctly, than in the last (or next?) release this feature was included....
Which version to you use? The last one is 3.0.6.2056MR. But I am not sure about this...

You should update to the newest release (3.0.6.2056). Ask the supplier of the accesspoints for the update files.
