Configure and manage access points, wireless networks, and connected devices.
Go to My Products > Wireless to configure and manage Sophos Wireless.
Don't disconnect your access point from the power outlet when the lights blink rapidly. This means that a firmware update is in progress.
You must allow the following domains in your firewall so access points can communicate with Sophos Central, update the time, and log wireless events:
|Domain or IP address
|Remote login and logging
|Network Time Protocol (NTP) for time synchronization
126.96.36.199 with TCP port
Access points must be able to communicate with Sophos Central. You must ensure your network meets the following requirements:
- You must have DHCP and DNS servers to provide an IP address to the access point and answer its DNS requests (IPv4 only).
- Access points can reach Sophos Central without requiring a VLAN to be configured on the access point for this connection.
- There's no HTTPS proxy on the communication path.
For remote support, allow outbound SSH connections on port 22.
You must add the proper VLANs in the trunk port of the wired switch. The access point always communicates over untagged VLAN. Make sure the native or management VLAN is untagged in the wired switch.
