Question

What commands should I use to enable local subnet on a standalone AP?

Customer Environment

APs without ZoneDirector controller - standalone

Root Cause

I have many APs to setup so going through GUI setup is time taking. So I need CLI option.

Resolution

First you need to create a subnet using "set subnet" command. Then you have to enable the DHCP server using the same command but using different options.

1. Creating a subnet. This requires you to specify a name like "local-subnet1", IP address and subnet mask for the network, and access VLAN ID. Please see the sample below.

rkscli: set subnet local-subnet1 enable ipaddr 192.168.10.1 mask 255.255.255.128 untag 1
+ /etc/init.d/nat enable br1 192.168.10.1 255.255.255.128
Loading NAT/Firewall modules...
Enabling NAT...exec _add_nat for  br0
+ /etc/init.d/nat hotspot br0 10.1.0.1
OK
rkscli: 
 
2. Enable a DHCP server to hand-out IP addresses. This requires specifying starting IP and number of DHCP IPs to hand-out. Please see the sample below.

rkscli: set subnet local-subnet2 dhcps enable starting-ipaddr 192.168.10.2 user-number 50
Stopping dnsmasq ...
Stopping dnsmasq ...
Starting dnsmasq ...
OK
