Network requirements

Access points must be able to communicate with Sophos Central. You must ensure your network meets the following requirements:

  • You must have DHCP and DNS servers to provide an IP address to the access point and answer its DNS requests (IPv4 only).
  • Access points can reach Sophos Central without requiring a VLAN to be configured on the access point for this connection.
  • Communication on ports 443, 123, and 80 to any internet server is possible.
  • There's no HTTPS proxy on the communication path.


Don’t disconnect your access point from the power outlet when the lights blink rapidly. This means that a firmware flash is in progress. For example, a firmware flash after a scheduled firmware update.
