We have a 4404 controller here, and would like to set up a a small remote office with wireless using our controller. The issue is being able to keep the same SSID at the remote office as we have at the central office without having the latency of multiple hops for the remote office to get to it's local applications.
Are there any options that would let us use the same SSID but do central authentication and local switching? I've tried H-REAP, but it would not let us use the same SSID at both locations (we have to use the same SSID for policy\logistical reasons).
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
If you want to run H-REAP, the ssid you have running on the central site, just set that to local switching. You don't have to create any interfaces on the wlc. After you do that, go into the configuration of the remote ap you want to set to h-reap. Set the mode to H-REAP and apply, the ap will reboot. Once the ap comes back, you will get a tab (H-REAP). Click on that tab and set your native vlan and make sure the switch port the h-reap ap is connected to is set to trunk and native vlan x (which is your management.. vlan your ap ip address is on). Then hit apply and go to vlan mapping, here... your local switch ssids will show and you can set the local vlan on that ssid. The other ssid's if you have any will appear as centrally switched since you haven't enabled local switching.
