AP and GRE Tunnel

Hi i want to know if it is possible that an AP made an GRE tunnel to differents  controllers based on the choosen SSID by the client. For example:

 

Controller A is the end of the GRE tunnel when the SSID A is choosen and controller B when the SSID B is  choosen.

 

Best Regards

That cannot be done, unfortunately.  An access point can only have a GRE tunnel to a single controller.  Why not put a layer 2 GRE tunnel between the two controllers and MAP the VLAN B to the tunnel, so that the user traffic would effectively end up on controller B?

Re: AP and GRE Tunnel

Thank you for this answer.

 

Actually, i just want that the trafic ends on controller B when the choosen SSID is B. I guess your solution will be OK. Can you give me the steps needed for this configuration in details please.*

 

 

Thank you again.

Thank for the answer.

 

Just one last question: For The licence, controller A and B show have the same licence or not?

 

Thankx again.

Re: AP and GRE Tunnel

You do not need a license for any controller that is not terminating access point traffic (Controller B).  If you have other access terminating on that controller, you need licenses for those access points.
