Need help configuring a guest WiFi

Hello all,

we have a set of 4 Aruba IAP215.
Our plan is to create 2 Networks, one internal one for guests. The guest WiFi should be seperated by a VLAN, just denying the traffic using the firewall is not satisfactory.
The access points are connected to switch ports serving the internal VLAN as primary/untagged and the guest VLAN as tagged.
In the guest VLAN there is a firewall that routes all traffic to the internet and can also act as a DHCP server.

Till now we tried 2 configurations:

1.    IP Network assigned (using the firewall's DHCP), static VLAN assignment
In this case the systems connected to the WiFi did not get any IPs. A notebook connected to the switch in the guest VLAN gets an IP without problems

2. IP assigned by the Virtual Controller, custom VLAN assignment using a Local DHCP Scope with VLAN 20 (guest VLAN)
This seemed to work at first, but we can reach internal systems using this config, showing that the traffic is routed through the primary VLAN not the guest VLAN

Any hints on how to get this config working?

 

Thanks in advance

Re: Need help configuring a guest WiFi

Are those VLANs trunked to those IAPs ? Internal , Guest VLANs
And if you do make sure that you have Wired Profile configure to support those VLANs in trunk mode and make sure the switch port is configured the same
Thank you

Hello,

 

thanks for youir reply Victor.

 

The switch ports the IAPs are connected to (1 port used on each) are configured to serve both VLANs, the internal one being the primary one.

I am not sure why I should need a Wired Profle, the wired laptop was only mentioned to show that DHCP worked but wasn't forwarded to the wifi clients.

Thanks again

Chris

Re: Need help configuring a guest WiFi

E0 on your IAP port needs to be configured in Trunk Mode with the correct VLANs to match what you have configured on the switchport

Re: Need help configuring a guest WiFi

Hi Victor, getting around to testing it now. I am using the default_wired_port_profile. Leaving it unchanged besides the VLAN setting:

wired-port-profile default_wired_port_profile
 switchport-mode trunk
 allowed-vlan 1,20
 native-vlan 1
 shutdown
 access-rule-name default_wired_port_profile
 speed auto
 duplex full
 no poe
 type employee
 auth-server InternalServer
 captive-portal disable
 no dot1x
 inactivity-timeout 1000

 

And this is the Port configuration, but only eth0 is used.

enet0-port-profile default_wired_port_profile

enet1-port-profile default_wired_port_profile

 

But no change with the guest wifi, Do I need to do something like adding roles?

 

I am sorry, but I am all new to this and am feeling a bit helpless.

 

Thanks in advance

 

Chris
