rap licensing

hello

 

im 99% sure but i want to be 100% sure

 

You do not need PEFGN license to be able to use RAPS and their awsome VPN GRE Tunnel feature? :)

 

As far i remenber the RAP license was merge to the AP license back on 5.x

 

I have never sold a Controller without PEFGN license so well now there is a client that does not want it if its not necesary and they will be just using a bunch of RAPS for Remote wireless and tunnel termination on the central site.

 

 

Cheers

Carlos

Re: rap licensing

Yes, standard AP license for RAPs.


PEF-NG if you want to customize roles.

Re: rap licensing

Hi Tim, 

I was pretty sure, that PEFNG license is needed for RAP operations. It is however absolutely mandatory for Split-tunneling mode.

Many regards,

Re: rap licensing

Yes you would need it for split tunneling because that is a custom role.

Re: rap licensing

In our RAPNG architecture you just need PEF-V license. No ap license on VPN controller. Rap runs in iap mode and all config, provisioning done with Airwave.

Re: rap licensing

Seth now you got me all confused when i though that i was 100% sure...

 

PEF-V license??? thats not the via license? why do i need a via license?

 

Policy Enforcement Firewall Virtual Private Network (PEFV)—Enables the roles based Policy Enforcement Firewall for VIA clients. This is a controller license.

 

AP Capacity License—For RAP indoor and Outdoor mesh APs. Campus, Remote or Mesh APs can terminate on the controller without the need for a separate license.

 

after reading this i was like okay 99% sure i just need ap capacity license so ill ask to be 100%, i ask and now i see your post and im totally confused again haha

 

Please explain a little more please?

 

Cheers

Re: rap licensing

Are you doing traditional RAP or next gen IAP-VPN?

Re: rap licensing

If you are doing a traditional RAP design and not using custom roles (inc. split-tunneling), then you only need AP licenses.
