FlexConnect VLAN Central Switching and guest WEB Auth

Hi,

I have a senario where all my AP's are flexconnect AP's, that is because og WVoIP.

In most loacation I have a local intenet connection for guests, and beacuse of that the Guest SSID is locally sitched.

I have a few small locations that do not have a local subnet for guests and on those locations I would like to centrally switch the guest trafic.

I was looking at FlexConnect VLAN Central Switching to solve my problem, but as far as I can see this only works with 802.1x SSID's and aaa override.

Is there no way to do FlexConnect VLAN Central Switching on SSID's with WEB auth or PSK?

Hope some one can answer me.

Thanks

Aksel

So create a new WLAN, the WLAN profile will be different that the original guest WLAN and assign it a WLAN ID of 16 or higher. This new WLAN will have the same setting as the original guest SSID except that local switching is not enabled.

You now need to create AP Groups so you can specify site with local guest vlan's will use the original SSID and the sites with no guest local clan will use the new SSID you created.

Here is a doc regarding AP Groups

AAA override only works with 802.1x by sending a radius attribute to change the vlan's.

I guess you need to explain what you are trying to accomplish in detail because maybe there is a work around.

FlexConnect VLAN Central Switching and guest WEB Auth

I need to have a SSID for guests with WEB AUTH splash page and flexconnect local switching on most locations.

I some locations there is no vlan for terminating guests locally, in those locations I need to centally switch the guest clients.

The AP's in both type of locations need to be flexconnect because we use the wireless network for telephones (7925G).

FlexConnect VLAN Central Switching and guest WEB Auth

I did not think you could have 2 wlan profiles with the same SSID.

The customer wolu rather not have 2 guest SSID's if it can be helped

Why have a different SSID when you can have the same? To me its consistency you want. Either way you will need to use AP Groups.
