72 CHAPTER 5: CONFIGURING AND MANAGING PORTS AND VLANS
All WX switch ports are network ports by default. You must set the port
type for ports directly connected to MAP access ports and to wired user
stations that must be authenticated to access the network. When you
change port type, MSS applies default settings appropriate for the port
type. Table 5 lists the default settings applied for each port type. For
example, the MAP column lists default settings that MSS applies when
you change a port type to ap (MAP).
Table 6 lists how many MAPs you can configure on a WX switch, and
how many MAPs a switch can boot. The numbers are for directly
connected and Distributed MAPs combined.
