  • 1.  Branch office connectivity issue- AP 205 and 7010 controller!

    Posted Apr 13, 2015 05:57 AM

    Hello,

     

    I have a 7010 controller in HO from which I have a MPLS connectivity to one of the branch sites, where  there is a requirement of 5 new AP's(AP 205). Can I associate this new AP's to the HO's controller?(as there is a MPLS link). If yes what are the ports I need to open on firewall. If no is there an alternate solution where the managability can be from central location(HO)?

     

    Thanks.

    You could also try bridge mode

    we have several branch offices that we did not feel like buying a local controller for and just use bridge mode over MPLS

    You can connect the APs to the controller at HQ over the MPLS if that is what you want and there is adequate connectivity.   The following lists the firewall port requirements for AP to Controller.

     EDIT:

    If CPsec is enabled, UDP 4500 is also required.

    In addition, if you have CPsec enabled, then UDP 4500 is required.
