Adding AP into Social WiFi Panel

To add your Access Point to Panel, log in to your account, go to Access Points tab and click “Add new”

Your device’s MAC address can be found in Dashboard -> Network on the bottom of screen.

Firewall

If you have an external firewall behind your Aruba devices, make sure that these ports are enabled:

TCP port 2083

Aruba also uses their own port to connect the Access Point with the controller. Make sure to enable port UDP 8211 if you can't connect your AP with the controller.

You are now ready to test your new network by connecting to it through the configured Access Point.
