My first experience with a Sophos Access Point was a painful affair, as the Access Point (an AP55) was on a subnet sitting behind a separate router and the subnet’s DHCP server wasn’t the XG Firewall.

Sophos Mobile integration ensures that users can access SGN encrypted files and access full disk recovery keys from their mobile devices. Sophos AP 15 / 15C. Sophos AP 55 / 55C. Sophos AP 100C Access PointGet secure and reliable wireless access all over the office. A wireless access point (WAP) is a networking hardware device that allows a Wi-Fi enabled device to connect to a wired network. To configure an access point from Sophos Central, you need to connect it to the internet and register it on Sophos Central using the serial number available on the package.

After way too much mucking around I finally came across the following article:
SophosHow to troubleshoot registration issues for the Sophos Access Point
The upshot was to add Option 234 to the DHCP scope, with Option 234 pointing to the IP address of the XG Firewall you want the Access Point to register with.

Sophos access point apx 320For completeness I also placed the Access Point onto the same subnet as the XG Firewall and it also failed to register with the XG Firewall, as the DHCP server for the subnet was a Windows server. After adding Option 234 to the DHCP scope the AP55 showed up on the XG Firewall.
