Re: Failed to convert RAP-3WN to RAP

Thank you!

 

you are right the VPN pool now is configured in another range and the RAP works.

 

 

Next step is configure RAP pointing to the public ip address, i think is the only thing tha i have to change, isnt't it?

 

port 4500 and 500 udp are open, and the router with public ip address has NAT configure pointing to the controller. need i something else more?

 

thanks!!!!

You only need port UDP 4500 open and a 1:1 nat from your public address to the private address of the controller.

Re: Failed to convert RAP-3WN to RAP

one more question.

 

I guess i'll have to connect the RAP to a DSL or Cable Modem in RAP Eth0, and the modem should have DHCP activated, previously i will configure the RAP with the public IP address of the controller so when our custumer connect the RAP to his internet connection he shouldn't do anathing more.

 

If i provisioning now the RAP from the controller i guess i will loss conectivity because the RAP is conected in a VLAN not over internet yet, but i think is the only option that i have to make it easy for our customer.

 

will it work if i do in this way? port 4500 UDP should be opened in the DSL or Cable router?

 

Thank you very much for your support!!!

Yes, you will lose connectivity.  Provision the access point to the public ip address, and when it is rebooting, pack up the RAP and give it to the customer.

 

By default the customer's DSL or cable router should pass UDP 4500.  You should not have to do anything.

Re: Failed to convert RAP-3WN to RAP

Hi!

 

Regarding to RAP behaviour, what happens if i have the RAP in my house, the RAP establish ipsec-VPN conection with the controller and starts to radiate the SSID that we had configure in the AP-GROUP, but instead using Wifi adapter on my laptop i connect to eth1 with fastethernet cable, what will happen in this case? i will be able to access to the same SSIDs? or only to internet? the RAP works as a bridge in this case between the laptop and the DSL router?

 

Regards!

Re: Failed to convert RAP-3WN to RAP

The Wifi and ethernet can be configured as tunnel, split-tunnel or bridged (the forwarding mode) .  By default all the traffic is tunneled back to the controller.

Re: Failed to convert RAP-3WN to RAP

thank you for reply!

 

if i have 3 SSID's and each SSID is in different vlan in the controller with different roles etc, when i connect from my house to the RAP with fastethernet cable, by defautl the RAP will forward all the traffic to the controller?

 

if i connect using wifi adapter i can select the SSID but if i do with fastethernet i don't how the RAP or controller can identify in wich SSID or VLAN i will be.

 

Regards!
