managing remote C800 with the wireless controller

We have a number of regional offices throughout the country with a C800 as the Internet facing router and it is also our wireless.

We have a Cisco wireless controller in the Data Center an we need to manage\monitor all the C800, but the problem is that those remote sites

are not VPN'd nor part of our WAN network.

Which setup do you recommend:

1) 1)      WLC to monitor the C800 using its public IP address

1)  2) Create a VPN tunnel from each of the remote sites to our data center and only allow wireless to go through for mgmt purposes

anany other options?

Re: managing remote C800 with the wireless controller

First question is which 800 do you have ? there's like 20 different versions out there.

If you talk about WLC, I would suppose you have something like the 880 ?

I'm afraid the WLC will need the internal AP ip address. So you would need to do so reverse nat to direct public ip address tarffic on capwap ports to the internal AP.

This or the VPN tunnel.
