Traffic between Secure Ports and Wireless Users on a RAP

Hey Guys,

I was wondering, if you assign remote wired and wireless users to the same role and VLAN.

Does the traffic between wired and wireless users travels all the way back to the controller?

What about between wireless to wireless and wired to wired?


Best regards,

The traffic stays local, is the short answer. There is even a new option in ArubaOS 5.0 where even if they are on different subnets, the traffic will stay local. That is only available for split-tunneled or bridged clients. The option is called Remote AP local network access and it is in the AP system profile.

So there's no need to add a route src-nat rule for that traffic?

Permit

If you just do a permit, it will detect the local traffic and route it appropriately. As long as you are not denying it, this will work.
