About the H3C WA Series Access Points Configuration Guides

The H3C WA Series Access Points Configuration Guides are part of the H3C WA documentation set. They describe the software features for the H3C WA series access points, and guide you through the software configuration procedures. These configuration guides also provide configuration examples to help you apply the software features to different network scenarios. The H3C WA documentation set includes eight configuration guides:

 

Configuration guide

Content

Fundamentals Configuration Guide

Describes how to use the command line interface (CLI) of the AP, log in to and set up the AP, and perform file management, configuration file management, and software upgrade. This guide includes:

·       CLI

·       Logging In to the Device

·       FTP and TFTP

·       File Management

·       Configuration File Management

·       Software Upgrade

·       Device Management

WLAN Configuration Guide

Covers the WLAN technologies, such as WLAN services, WLAN security, WLAN RRM, WLAN QoS, WLAN IDS, and WDS. This guide includes:

·       WLAN Interface

·       WLAN Service

·       WLAN Security

·       WLAN RRM

·       WLAN IDS

·       WLAN QoS

·       WDS

·       WLAN Optimization

·       Advanced WLAN configuration

Layer 2 Configuration Guide

Covers Layer 2 technologies and features used on a LAN switched network, such as Ethernet interface, loopback and null interfaces, MAC address table, spanning tree, loopback detection, VLAN, Layer 2 forwarding, and PPP. This guide includes:

·       Ethernet Interface

·       Loopback and Null Interface

·       MAC Address Table

·       Spanning Tree

·       Loopback Detection

·       VLAN

·       Layer 2 Forwarding

·       PPP

Layer 3 Configuration Guide

Describes IP routing basics, IPv4 and IPv6 static routing, IP addressing (including static and dynamic IPv4 and IPv6 address assignment), network performance optimization, ARP, and interoperation between IPv4 and IPv6. This guide includes:

·       IP Routing Basics

IP Multicast Configuration Guide

Covers Layer 2 IPv4 multicast protocol IGMP snooping, and Layer 2 IPv6 multicast protocol MLD snooping. This guide includes:

·       IGMP Snooping

·       MLD Snooping

ACL and QoS Configuration Guide

Describes how to classify traffic with ACLs, and allocate network resources and manage congestions with QoS technologies to improve network performance and network use efficiency. You can use ACLs to help other function modules (such as QoS and IP routing) classify or filter traffic. This guide includes:

·       ACL

·       QoS

Security Configuration Guide

Covers security features. The major security features available on the AP include identity authentication (AAA and PKI), access security (802.1X, MAC authentication, and port security), secure management (SSH), and SSL. This guide includes:

·       AAA

·       802.1X

·       MAC Authentication

·       Port Security

·       Public Key

·       PKI

·       SSH2.0

·       SSL

Network Management and Monitoring Configuration Guide

Describes features that help you manage and monitor your network, for example, display system information, and use the ping and tracert commands to check and debug network connectivity. This guide includes:

·       System Maintenance and Debugging

·       NTP

·       SNMP

·       CWMP

·       Information Center
