Point-to-Point Bridge Question

I am trying to configure a Point-to-Point bridge accross two IAP-277's and I think I know what to do but wanted to clear upsomething before starting to configure them.  Do I configure both the near and far side eth0 port for bridging or does this only happen for the far end?

Re: Point-to-Point Bridge Question

You should configure both to bridge to be safe. If your network is flat, then you are likely fine to just do the far side. But I would do both and certainly both if you are trunking VLANs over the mesh.

Re: Point-to-Point Bridge Question

The network is just one big vlan. I had my far side set as bridge and I could not ping to a client on the other side of it. I then set my near side to bridge and then rebooted. When it came back up I could no longer manage the cluster. I am reseting the cluster now and will try again.

Re: Point-to-Point Bridge Question

Are you doing 'vlan 1' for your cluster config or have you specified some other VLAN? Do you have an SSID configured so that the APs are defaulting on reboot?

Re: Point-to-Point Bridge Question

everything is on vlan 1

 

SSID is configured with WPA2-PSK

Re: Point-to-Point Bridge Question

If you can, OM me your config or post the screenshots. I assume you have the extend SSID disabled and you could at least bring up the mesh link on the bench so you know the mesh is working right? I don't have an IAP set to bridge and I likely need to get a pair and run the latest code, but this is what I had configured with a TRUNK bridge config (you should be able to just ignore the trunking elements

Re: Point-to-Point Bridge Question

Correct, the extended SSID is already disabled and I can see the far end come up via mesh. The issue just comes when I connect cables into the near and far end and try pinging accross them.  I will send you a config shortly as I reset the APs when I reset them. I should have the config back to you in about 15 minutes.

Re: Point-to-Point Bridge Question

Here is my running config. I have Client A (10.10.40.92) connected to a dumb switch that is connected to radio FDC-ArubaB1P2P (10.10.40.96). Accross the air is radio FDC-ArubaB2P2P (10.10.40.95) connected to a dumb switch with Client B (10.10.40.85) attached to it. Client A and Client B cannot ping each other currently. Mesh is up and running and I have set the far radio FDC-ArubaB2P2P for Eth0 Bridging according to the manual.

Can you enable the port or run a 'no shut'?
