Rogue Access Point Scan Results

You can see the results of a wireless rogue access detection point scan in the Rogue Access Point Detection (Wireless Intrusion Detection System) settings. These settings display a list of untrusted wireless access points found by the most recent rogue access point detection scan. This list does not include access points that match the trusted access points defined in your wireless rogue access point detection configuration.

The Rogue Access Point Detection feature for Firebox and XTM wireless devices is different than the Rogue Access Point Detection feature designed for the Gateway Wireless Controller and managed WatchGuard AP devices. For more information on Rogue Access Point Detection on the Gateway Wireless Controller, see Enable Rogue Access Point Detection.

For information on the differences between Firebox and XTM wireless devices and WatchGuard AP devices, see Wireless Access Point Types.
