2. System Overview and Getting Started
2.1 Introduction of 4ipnet EAP320
The 4ipnet EAP320 Enterprise Access Point is embedded with two dual-radio RF cards (802.11 a/b/g/n
MIMO in dust-proof metal housing) and is designed for seamless wireless connectivity in enterprise or
industrial environments of all dimensions. EAP320 makes the wireless communication fast, secure and
easy. It supports business grade security, namely 802.1X, and Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA and WPA2).
By pushing a purposely built button, the 4ipWES (Press-n-Connect) feature makes it easy to bridge
wireless links of multiple EAP320s for forming a wider wireless network coverage.
EAP320 also features multiple ESSIDs with VLAN tags and multiple Virtual APs, great for enterprise
applications, such as separating traffic from different departments using different ESSIDs. The PoE LAN
port is able to receive power from Power over Ethernet (PoE) sourcing devices. Its metal case is IP50
anti-dust compliant, which means that EAP320 is well suited to WLAN deployment in industrial
environments.

6. Creating a WDS Bridge between two APs
WDS link creation is convenient for extending network coverage where running wires is not an option,
effectively transferring the traffic to the other end of WLAN/LAN through the EAP320. Since this is a peer
to peer connection, both EAP320s will be configured the same way.
Step 1: Make sure the Band and Channel are matched between the WDS peers
In order to create a valid WDS link, the two EAP320s must be configured to use the same channel
and band for their wireless settings. Click the Wireless icon and then General tab to go to the
following page.
Wireless General Settings Page
Please make sure both APs are using the same Band and Channel in order to establish a successful
WDS link. Click SAVE if any changes have been made.

Layer 2 STP: If the EAP320 is set up to bridge other network components, this option can be enabled to
prevent undesired loops because a broadcasting storm may occur in a multi-switch environment where
broadcast packets are forwarded in an endless loop between switches. Moreover, a broadcast storm may
consume most of the available system resources in addition to available bandwidth. Thus, enabling the
Layer 2 STP can lower such undesired occurrence and derive the best available data path for network
communication.

7.1.3 Port
The physical Ethernet ports of EAP320 can be configured to append a VLAN tag for upstream delivery.
•
Port: Selectable from LAN1 ~ LAN2. For each physical LAN port, administrator can choose to configure a
desired VLAN ID to be bundled with traffic going upstream from this particular port.
VLAN ID: Enable selected implies that network traffic sent upstream from this LAN port will
be tagged with the VLAN ID configured in the field below. Disable selected implies that traffic
from this LAN port will not be tagged with a VLAN ID.
Tunnel Interface: Select a LAN, VAP or WDS interface to designate its traffic to pass
through the CAPWAP Tunnel established between the AP and the controller. For network
interfaces that are unchecked, their traffic will be forwarded locally into the internet if this AP
is deployed remotely on the WAN side of a controller.
The ‘TIP’ in red at the bottom of the page explains that each service zone, from default to
Service Zone 8, has its fixed, pre-determined VLAN ID number. Admin needs to enter one of
the numbers in order to direct traffic back to a certain service zone.

communication performance if a poor connection occurs.
Advanced Wireless Settings Page
•
RTS Threshold: Enter a value between 1 and 2346. RTS (Request to Send) Threshold determines
the packet size at which the system issues a request to send (RTS) before sending the fragment to
prevent the hidden node problem. The RTS mechanism will be activated if the data size exceeds the
value provided. A lower RTS Threshold setting can be useful in areas where many client devices are
associating with EAP320 or in areas where the clients are far apart and can detect only EAP320 but
not each other.
•
Fragmentation Threshold: Enter a value between 256 and 2346. The default is 2346. A packet size
larger than this threshold will be fragmented (sent with several pieces instead of one chunk) before
transmission. A smaller value results in smaller frames but allows a larger number of frames in
transmission. A lower Fragment Threshold setting can be useful in areas where communication is
poor or disturbed by a serious amount of radio interference.
•
DTIM Period: Input the DTIM Interval that is generated within the periodic beacon at a specified
frequency. Higher DTIM will allow the wireless client to save more energy, but the throughput will be
lowered.
•
Broadcast SSID: Disabling this function will stop the system from broadcasting its SSID. If broadcast
of the SSID is disabled, only devices that have the correct SSID can connect to the system.

WMM: The default is Disable. Wi-Fi Multimedia (WMM) is a Quality of Service (QoS) feature that
prioritizes wireless data packets based on four access categories: voice, video, best effort, and
background. Applications without WMM and applications that do not require QoS are assigned to the
best-effort category, which receives a lower priority than that of voice and video. Therefore, WMM
decides which data streams are more important and assigns them a higher traffic priority. This option
works with WMM-capable clients only.
<To receive the benefits of WMM QoS>
•
▬
The application must support WMM.
▬
WMM shall be enabled on EAP320.
▬
WMM shall be enabled in the wireless adapter on client’s computer.
IAPP: IAPP (Inter Access Point Protocol) is a protocol by which access points share information about
the stations connected to them. When this function is enabled, the system will automatically broadcast
information of associated wireless stations to its peer access points. This will help wireless stations
roam smoothly among IAPP-enabled access points in the same wireless LAN.
•
IGMP Snooping: When IGMP snooping is enabled, IGMP packets are transferred via the EAP320’s
network interface and the IP multicast host. Registration information is recorded and sorted into
multicast groups. The internal switch can then intelligently forward traffic only to those ports that
request multicast traffic. Adversely, without IGMP snooping, multicast traffic is treated like broadcast
traffic, with packets forwarded to all ports causing network inefficiencies.
•
Multicast/Broadcast Rate: Bandwidth configuration for multicast/broadcast packets. If your wireless
clients require a larger or smaller bandwidth for sending multicast/ broadcast packets, the
administrator can customize the EAP320’s multicast/ broadcast bandwidth here.

7.3.2 Service
The administrator can add or delete firewall services here; the services in this list will become options to
choose in firewall rule (when EtherType is IPv4).
EAP320 provides a list of rules to block or pass traffic of layer-3 or above protocols. These services are
available to choose from a drop-down list of layer2 firewall rule edit page with Ether Type IPv4. The first 28
entries are default services and the administrator can add/delete any extra desired services.
There are 28 firewall services available in default settings; these default services cannot be deleted but can
be disabled. If changes are made, please click SAVE to save the settings before leaving this page.

7.3.3 Advanced
At Firewall > Advanced, more advanced settings on firewall rules can be configured, providing extra security
enhancement against DHCP and ARP traffic traversing the available interfaces of the system.
Trust Interface: Each VAP interface can be checked individually to mark as trusted interfaces;
security enforcements on DHCP/ARP like DHCP snooping and ARP inspection will be carried out on
non-trusted interfaces.
DHCP Snooping: When enabled, DHCP packets will be validated against possible threats like
DHCP starvation attack; in addition, the trusted DHCP server (IP/MAC) can be specified to prevent
rouge DHCP server.
ARP Inspection: When enabled, ARP packets will be validated against ARP spoofing.
o
Proxy ARP option when enabled, AP will reply ARP requests on behalf of downlink
stations. The ARP table maintained by the AP will be used as a look up table upon receipt
of ARP request from AP uplink. Adversely, without Proxy ARP, ARP request is
broadcasted down into the AP’s wireless network causing network inefficiencies.
o
Force DHCP option when enabled, the AP only learns MAC/IP pair information through
DHCP packets. Since devices configured with static IP address does not send DHCP
traffic, any clients with static IP address will be blocked from internet access unless its
MAC/IP pair is listed and enabled on the Static Trust List.
o
Trust List Broadcast can be enabled to let other APs (with L2 firewall feature) learn the
trusted MAC/IP pairs to issue ARP requests.
o
Static Trust List can be used to add MAC or MAC/IP pairs of devices that are trusted to
issue ARP request. Other network nodes can still send their ARP requests; however, if
their IP appears on the static list (with different MAC), their ARP requests will be dropped
to prevent eavesdropping.
If any settings are changed, please click SAVE to save the configuration before leaving this page.
