Configuring the ProCurve Access
Controller xl Module (J8162A)
Before beginning the configuration, backup current configurations of all
devices. The Access Control Serer (740wl) and the Integrated Access Manager
(760wl) software must be updated to version 4.1.3.x or later and the 5300xl
switch software must be updated to version E.09.2x or later.
There are three phases of configuration:
configuration of the 740wl/760wl
configuration of the module
configuration of the 5300xl switch
HP recommends the use of a static IP address for the 740wl/760wl. If the IP
address of the 740wl/760wl should change, access controller xl modules and
720wl Access Controllers would need to be reconfigured. Record this infor-
mation, you will need it to configure the module. You also need to configure
a shared secret on the 740wl/760wl. Refer to the documentation that came
with that unit.
Once the module has been installed into the 5300xl switch you need to
configure it to enable communication with the 740wl/760wl. The module
requires an IP address. By default the module uses DHCP to obtain an IP
address. ProCurve recommends using DHCP to configure the module's IP
address. If you need to configure a specific IP address for the module, do the
From the CLI command prompt at the global configuration level
ProCurve Switch 5308xl (config) #
enter access-controller<slot ID>
where <slot ID> is the slot letter (A-H) where the module is installed.
To configure the module's IP address
enter ip address <IP> <mask>
where <IP> is the selected address and <mask> is the selected mask. CIDR
notation "/mask bit number" (for example 10.1.1.1/24) is an acceptable
shortcut for the IP address mask combination.
