VIA test on a master/local architecture


I would like to try a VIA deployment with a temporary licence.

In my architecture i have a master controler and 2 local.

I can't try it on my master controler because the temporay licence had already expired (3 times).

So i used the provided temp. licence on a local controler.


The VIA menu is now available on the web ui: all profiles, other etc..

So i try to follow the config guide, but:

Many parameters are blocked and seem to provided by the master (l2tp etc.) OK.

The VIA parameters: there are not available on the master due to the licence and it appears blocked on the local.


How can i edit that profiles ?

Is there any reboot to do on the local after adding the licence ?

Or should i need to "grant" the access to that profile on the local via the master ?


Thanks for your help.

You would need a permanent license on your master controller to configure the VIA profiles that are pushed to the local.

ok thank you

Collin so you need the VIA license on the MAster controller to push  the via profiles to the local controller 

AND you would need also a VIA license on the local controller to terminate the via tunnel on the LOCAL controller???

Yes. VIA licensing is done per controller.
