FortiWLC Configuring FortiWLM Location Manager

Configuring FortiWLM Location Manager

Location Manager is supported by release 3.7 and later.

Configuring with the CLI

This example creates a packet-capture-profile named Location on a controller and then forwards the captured packets directly from AP 16 to Location Manager on port #9177. Port 9177 is the port where Location Manager is listening for incoming packets in L3 mode.
