Wired-Port profile

Table of contents

A wired port profile configures the USB port on the AP as a wired ethernet port. It allows to configure all aspects of the ethernet connectivity of the USB device including the following:

  • Wired port settings (speed, duplex, …)
  • VLAN assignment
  • Network authentication settings (MAC-Auth, 802.1x, …)
  • ACL or Aruba user role assignment
  • Forwarding mode (tunneled, bridged) - ArubaOS-only

An wired port profile is bound to an AP or AP group using the following commands:


ap-group <ap-group-name>
    enet-usb-port-profile <wired-port-profile-name> (default: shutdown)

For details about the ap-group configuration refer to the ArubaOS CLI Reference - ap-group.

For details about the wired profile configuration refer to the ArubaOS CLI Reference - Wired profile.
