Bridge mode SSID over MPLS & P2P network

Hi,

 

We have 10 branches with 3400 controller, AP 105 & CPPM act as a radius.

Domain controller, DHCP server & application server has been placed at H.O.

We are currently using tunnel mode for all branch wireless users but those respective branch user are not able to use their local resources like Printer, internet & file shairing with local branch user.

 

So we decided to configure bridge mode over the MPLS & P2P network connectivity.

 

We are expecting that, wireless user will be authenticate from H.O. and get the IP address from respective branch wired IP subnet to utilize the branch resources.

 

awaiting for your suggestion....

 

Thank you,

Nik-mh

Re: Bridge mode SSID over MPLS & P2P network

can you please provide sample tech note.

There is default vlan id configuration at all branch location.

 

Shall i hv to advertise branch location vlan into the controller & CPPM will assigned the respective vlan tag to authenticated user?

 

Thank You,

Just make the VLAN in the Virtual AP "1" and the forwarding mode of the Virtual AP to be "bridged". If you do that, the traffic will be bridged to the same VLAN that the access point is plugged into. 

 

You also will need to have control plane security enabled on the controller for this to work.

Opps.. The controller is in production, SSID configured in tunnel mode & control plane security is disabled.

If i enable the control plane security all AP will be reauthenticate...

I would schedule a 1 hour window to enable control plane security.  You can probably configure an AP-group and Clone the Virtual AP to make it Bridged during that window, also.
