Controller configuration for Instant AP VPN

Hello

Im trying to test this but im unable to find a document or something that tells me how to configure the VPN PART on the controller i know how to do it on the IAP but not on the controller

Does anyone have a documentation on how to do this?  or its easy can you tell me how do you set it up on the controller site?

For now i got a controller 620 with 6.1.3.5 code

 

Cheers

Carlos

See the attached document.

 

You will need a different version of SW on your controller.   Contact TAC for a copy of 6.1.3.1-RNG.   This will be merged into AOS 6.2 as GA by mid-December.

Re: Controller configuration for Instant AP VPN

so i need this firmware to make it work?

If im on 6.1.3.5 it willl be like a downgrade to that firmware?

 

So as far i understand this is possible with that firmawre but it will be like really released when the 6.2 GA gets out? i mean that it will be native in the normal  Firmwares?

Correct - 6.1.3.1-RNG is required.

Correct- you need to downgrade

Correct - this feature will be included in AOS 6.2 onward as a GA feature.

Marcus, 

 

Is the PEFV license required on the controller for the Instant VPN?

Nope.  VPN termination is part of the Base OS on the controller.

Marcus, are there successful deployment out there yet? I've been working with TAC for the last 3 days and we cannot get routing to the remote network functioning.

They even setup a lab to test for the last day and they haven't been able to route traffic between the RAP and the controller LAN.

I'm supposed to deploy tomorrow and I'm getting no love. It seems that TAC is completely unfamiliar with the Instant VPN capability.

If there is anyone who has successfully deployed that could shed some light it would help immensely.

I've set this up in the lab and couldn't seem to get the ipsec tunnel up from IAP to controller.  I tried it with v6.2 on controller but same thing.  Didn't really spend much time on it though.

 

Having said said that, the GRE tunnel does seem to work fine.


If my post is helpful please give kudos, or mark as solved if it answers your post.

Re: Controller configuration for Instant AP VPN

Anyone seem to get anywhere with this? I have a potential client project that this functionality would be ideal for but am concerned that the MVP's weren't having the best of luck getting it operational. 

 

Cheers!
