Configuring WEP 301
Setting Static WEP
Key Values
MSS supports dynamic WEP automatically. To enable static WEP,
configure WEP keys and assign them to unicast and multicast traffic. You
can set the values of the four static WEP keys, then specify which of the
keys to use for encrypting multicast frames and unicast frames. If you do
this, MSS continues to support dynamic WEP in addition to static WEP.
To set the value of a WEP key, use the following command:
set service-profile name wep key-index num key value
The key-index num parameter specifies the index you are configuring.
You can specify a value from 1 through 4.
The key value parameter specifies the hexadecimal value of the key. Type
a 10-character ASCII string (representing a 5-byte hexadecimal number)
or type a 26-character ASCII string (representing a 13-byte hexadecimal
number). You can use numbers or letters. ASCII characters in the
following ranges are supported:
0 to 9
A to F
a to f
To configure WEP key index 1 for radio profile rp1 to aabbccddee, type
the following command:
WX1200# set service-profile rp1 wep key-index 1 key
success: change accepted.
Assigning Static WEP
When static WEP is enabled, static WEP key 1 is assigned to unicast and
multicast traffic by default. To assign another key to unicast or multicast
traffic, use the following commands:
set service-profile name wep active-multicast-index num
set service-profile name wep active-unicast-index num
The num parameter specifies the key and the value can be from 1 to 4.
To configure an SSID that uses service profile wepsrvc to use WEP key
index 2 for encrypting multicast traffic, type the following command:
WX1200# set service-profile wepsrvc wep
active-multicast-index 2
success: change accepted.
