Do we still need "ip forward-protocol udp 5246" if static ip assigned to AP

Hi One new AP needs to replace old AP. The new AP has had same configuration as the old AP. Static ip address is assigned to the AP. dhcp server is remote and has Layer3 connection to the AP. Do you think we still need to add a command "ip forward-protocol udp 5246" in the switch3750 connected to the AP. Thank you

If you factory reset the AP and use the broadcast discovery method you will need it. If you use DHCP, DNS or manual AP priming you can turn it off.

Thank you so much for your fast reply. You are correct. Can we say this command allow the broadcast of ap to find wlc, and once ap find wlc, the command is not required. so we can remove the command after ap join wlc.  So this way can also prevent new ap from joining the wlc.  For my case, the AP already has static ip address and wlc address. so we do not need the command.  Is this right? Thank you
