Remote manage IAP


I have a pair of IAP's in a Virtual controller configuration at a remote site. I seem to remember that there was an option to allow access to the webui from remote networks that needed to be checked to access it. I can't seem to find it, does anyone know where this is? For example My remote site AP is , I have a WAN connection to my corp net and I need to access it from the main office.

It honestly should just work if you attempt to web into any of the IAPs.

Re: Remote manage IAP

Ok, Here's the odd part. If I attempt to connect to the master virtual controller I get the basic error connecting error message. If attempt to connect to the 2cd access point in the cluster in Internet Explorer I get the SSL cert error and when I select continue it then times out after redirecting to the Master virtual controllers address.

At the site, it does work fine. I do remember there was a check box to allow access to the mgmt. UI from remote networks. I forget what exactly it said, it was on the older version of code for the IAP-105. I see now there's a management access on the firewall portion that by default is empty. Do you know if it allows all networks by default?

Re: Remote manage IAP

If you wish to restrict access to the GUI for certain subnets, you can find this under Security -> Inbound Firewall -> Management and Corporate Access configuration.


By default this will have no entries and allow all networks.

Re: Remote manage IAP

Thanks for confirming what I suspected. I guess I'll need to look into why I'm unable to connect to the Master Virtual Controller. If I ssh to the 2 devices I can connect to ap2 but not ap1(Master) both are on the same subenet.  I'm going to double check the IP settings to make sure they're correct.
