Guest traffic using a transparent proxy

Good day,


We need to pass the traffic from the guest users through a transparent proxy (Blue Coat), guest users are getting addresses from the network (Vlan 5) and the DHCP server is being handled by the WLAN controller (because it didn’t work when the external DHCP server was deployed with this topology).


The network topology is attached.


As you can see, we enabled a dedicated port (interface GE 1/5) to pass the guess traffic to the Proxy server, but it seems to not be the correct solution. What I guess is that I cannot pass just the traffic of that Vlan for the port, because the user traffic is sent using the GRE tunnel, but propably I'm wrong.


May you please give us advice on how to use the Aruba controller to achieve this?


Thanks in advance.

What is the default gateway of the guest traffic?
