We have a anchor Foreign WLAN setup . The SSID is using the L3 webauth security . The SSID is anchored to the anchor controller . The setup is working fine that the clients get the webpage from the anchor controller and the IP as expected . The issue is that VM clients in the nettwork is not able to get the ip address .
Documents states that this is a limitation of cisco and inorder to overcome the issue we need to enable the Passive client option on the SSID .
Since we are using the L3 security i am not able to enable the Passive client option .
Hence i need to configure a SSID with L2 prifile in the anchor foreign setup ( need to get the IP range from the Anchor dynamic interface ) and the VM should get the IP . Please help me to get this done
Starting in 184.108.40.206, cisco added support for non-cisco WGBs with the passive client feature on a wlan. This feature will also apply to VMware and virtual clients -- it is available on the 2100, 2500, 5500 WLCs, although it is not available on the 4400 series (WISM/3750) due to architecture limitations.
you can try enabling the passive client feature on your WLAN to see if this helps resolve the issue.
VM clients in bridge mode is still an issue. Their workaround right now is to have your VM client in NAT or shared mode. I run Parallel's on my Mac and can't get an IP for both the client and bridged VM.
