VPN Configuration for remote AP mode

    HI All, 

    My question about VPN configuration for remote AP , actually AP is in the same site with the controller but i used the remote mode because i have only one controller and i need to keep SSID broadcasting if the controller is down , my question about the VPN Configuration needed for this situation considering that both in same site already not a branch site , what should i configure in steps?

    My colleague just wrote a very detailed paper on how to configure remote AP here:  https://support.hpe.com/hpesc/public/docDisplay?docId=a00097853en_us

     

    Please keep in mind that configuring remote AP in a campus setting is very nonstandard.

    If You use AP as Campus it should be within the organization internal network Managed by MC. If Config as RAP, it should be outside from the network but managed by MC.

    But Campus AP/RAP your data/management traffic securely communicate via a GRE tunnel.  No need to create another VPN to the corporate network.
