SmartMesh Disable all LAN Ports for Security

Hi,

is there a way to disable both LAN Ports on my ZF7372 who act as a Mesh AP.
I want to disable both ports to prevent a user connecting his private Devices and get access to my LAN.
If i try to disable both ports i got the Message that there have to be at least one Trunk Port.

Thanks.

Kind Regards
Marco

KBA-1968: How to disable Ethernet port on the AP

The way to disable the ethernet ports on the AP to avoid users to plug in to the un-used ports and bypass authentication.

Login to the command line interface of the AP using putty .

Execute the command "get eth" to dispaly the current status of the ethernet ports on the stand alone Ap.

Identify the ethernet port number which have to be enabled/ disabled and execute the command "set eth enable/disable .


In case the Ap is managed by a zone director :
