Access Point APX 530 does not work with Sophos XGS 136

Hi experts. I recently buy two new devices, Sophos FW XGS 136 appliance and AP530 wireless Access point. I am trying to put them to work togheter but not having success. I have registered I can manege Firewall va Sophos Portal, also same as AP (when it is connected to my LAN with a Internet access). However, when I connect sophos AP to firewall port, it does not appear in the AP list (PROTECT -> WIRELESS -> ACCESS POINTS), So I am unable to namage AP throught the Firewall. My scenario is as below:

Sophos XGS 136 Firewall PORT2 (WAN) connected to my Internet link and working fine

Port3 of Firewall configured as WiFi port, with DHCP actived and working fine

Alcatel-Lucent PoE Switch connected to FW Port3

Sophos APX 530 connected to PoE Switch and working fine (getting IPv4 address from DHCP on FW Port3

PROBLEM: AP does not appear in Access Points list (PROTECT -> WIRELESS -> ACCESS POINTS).

Active/inactive access points: No records found

Pending access points: No records found

Any help will be welcome.

  • Sometimes the APX is "very old" (stock) and comes with firmware, which could eventually not be known to the firewall. 

    So you have to update the firmware first. This can be done via Central.

    BTW: You could actually use Central Wireless Management anyway, as its free and give you certain advantages.
