Hi, can anyone tell me exactly what ports I need to open on my FW in a datacentre to remote branch scenario?

WLC located on it's own DMZ and the FW is between WCS,WLCS and LAP

Hi, what you need to open in FW are:

Open ports for:

UDP port 12222 for LWAPP Data Packets and UDP port 12223

for LWAPP Control Messages

If you have other WLC which belong to the same mobility group out of the DMZ area, then you also need to open:

Inter-Controller Tunneled Client Data - IP Protocol 97

Inter-Controller Control Traffic - UDP Port 16666 (or 16667, if encrypted)

Optional management/operational protocols:

SSH/Telnet - TCP Port 22/23

TFTP - UDP Port 69

NTP - UDP Port 123

SNMP - UDP Ports 161 (gets and sets) and 162 (traps)

HTTPS/HTTP - TCP Port 443/80

Syslog- TCP Port 514
