Remote AP - Standard Mode/Split Tunnel

How do I obtain a local IP for a remote AP? I have a branch office with remote AP's, the controller is not local (off site datacenter)..DHCP is local, file servers local, etc.. How can I obtain a local address (VLAN)? Can't use Bridge mode because we use captive portal. Any ideas?

Re: Remote AP - Standard Mode/Split Tunnel

The questions are:

- What kind of wireless network is it (guest, employee, etc)?
- Does it use encryption/authentication?
- What services are you trying to deliver to the client?

Re: Remote AP - Standard Mode/Split Tunnel

What you can do is:

- On Employee, change the Virtual AP forwarding mode to bridged. That will give the clients an ip address in the same local range as the access point.
- On the Guest SSID, you can make it fully tunneled so that you can filter guest user traffic back at the headend.

It would get the ip address from whatever the local subnet DHCP server is providing. User traffic is truly bridged through the ethernet of the access point.
