This guide shows how to configure a Xirrus Access Point for SpotOn.


Log in to your Xirrus Management System (XMS) account. It is recommended to update your device firmware to the latest available version. Your Xirrus AP should be connected to the internet for it to be manageable from XMS.

You will require a RADIUS password and a Custom URL from the SpotOn Support team. Chat with us, send an e-mail ([email protected]) or give us a call (050 211 5201).
