Local bridging

Whenever possible, use local bridging to offload the CAPWAP tunnel. Note that in this case, Wi-Fi client devices obtain IP addresses from the same DHCP server as wired devices on the LAN. The vlan ID can only be configured from the CLI:

config wireless-controller vap

edit "vaplocalbridge"

set vdom "root"

set ssid "testvaplocalbridge"

set local-bridging enable

set vlanid 40 ---> only available in CLI
