Anchor-Foreign Configuration

Dear All,

I have a doubt on SSID Security configuration in Anchor-Foreign solution.

Is it required to configure the web authentication server details and redirection details in foriegn controller WLAN also..?  Or Only on Anchor configured for web authentication is enough..?

Foreign will tunnel all the traffic from client to anchor. It does not need to have the same security config on WLAN ..?

Best practice is to keep the WLAN's identical except for the interface you use. Now will it work... Maybe, but you would have to test that out.

Anchor-Foreign Configuration

Thank you Scott,

I hope so, for L3 security features the authenitcation happens at Anchor controller and L2 Security authentication happens at Foreign itself.. We configured web auth for guest users in only Achor and it works ...

Re: Anchor-Foreign Configuration

That is correct, because you are associating the ap in the foreign WLC and the the traffic is tunneled to the anchor which presents the splash page. Both WLAN's on the foreign and anchor should be identical except for the interface. Again, best practice.
