How network is assigned to slave IAPs

Hello,

 

It's a bit confused in my head, but i will try to be as clear as possible.

I want to know how network is assign to slave IAPs.

 Do i need to propagate each vlans to eachs iaps (slave and master) ?

Or is it possible to configure vpn between master and slave and only trunk vlans on master ?

(like capwap tunnel in cisco)

Network will be assigned through the vpn.

 

I hope to be understandable.

 

Thanks

Re: How network is assigned to slave IAPs

Hi ComeT,

 

you just need to have the IAP's in the same L2 network to form the cluster. 

 

So on the switches you will configure trunk ports, where you connect the IAP's, and you will add the VLANs you need. IAP's VLAN and usersVLANs.

Re: How network is assigned to slave IAPs

If the Client IP Assignment in an SSID is "Virtual Controller Assigned", all the traffic on that SSID is tunneled from all IAPs to the Virtual Controller and source-natted out of the Virtual controller.  DHCP is also provided by the VC (this might be the one you want).

 

If the client IP Assignment in an SSID is "Network Assigned", each IAP will bridge the traffic locally to the switch they are connected to.  If different VLANs are used with "Network Assigned", those VLANs must be trunked to every IAP, for users to be able to associate to that SSID and correctly be placed onto that VLAN.  No specific configuration is required on the IAP outside of the SSID configuration for the VLAN; the VLAN just must exist on the trunk:

So in that case,

I have a radius serveur for authentication with a specific vlans in radius attributes. If i configure virtual controller managed for Client IP assignement and default client vlan assignement. Will i get this vlans on clients ?
