I'm following https://support.sophos.com/support/s/article/KB-000036137?language=en_US to register new APs in Central.
This was not working until we allowed Port tcp:2713 to Heartbeat IP. This is undocumented in that KB article.
I cannot even find a Sophos KB about that Port 2713, only some posts in forums. Some have information that there was a bug that APs connected to central on a wrong port and had to be replaced.

They mentioned if the issue still persists to open a case to get this investigated further.
Thanks emmosophos, as written, it was'nt working until we opened the port.
We'll see what happens when we eventually register new devices in the future.
