We use the CWP feature from Aerohive with a 3r party certificate.
However, when trying to join the SSID configured with the CWP.
The certificate cannot be verified because the servername does not match our certificate CN.
The CWP seems to be hosted on the AP and webserver is reachable via one of the subinterface (in our case
As far as I know, certificate cannot be verified agains an IP and webserver needs to provide a proper hostname.

Questions :
Do we have to use our DNS server and add a PTR in order to resolve to a name that would match the certificate ?
We set the CWP with the option 'Use external DHCP and DNS servers on the network', I understood that by selecting this option, client can use the external DNS server (the one from our company) before being registered by the CWP, is that correct ?

I want to add that we also tried by generating a certificate from Hivemanager and ended up with same issue.

thank you
