Pass traffic through Virtual Controller IP

Setting up a small Virtual Controller managed network.


Traffic passes through AP IP. Is there a way to pass traffic through Virtual Controller IP?


My goal is to NAT the the VIP through the firewall to a different public IP.


Currenlty, I can only seem to do this through the AP's IP.

If you setup an SSID that has a virtual-Controller assigned addressed vlan, it will NAT out of the IP address of the VC.

Re: Pass traffic through Virtual Controller IP

Hi Colin,


Thanks for the reply!


I get this now. When Virtual Controller managed, traffic flows through the Virtual Controller Master IP, not the Virtual IP. This is by design.


I also have the option to create a VLAN and exit through that.
