guest auth. over flexconnect and dhcp server on WLC in centrall site.

Will this be working?

I have a flex AP on branch where guest users should authenticate at WLC in central site and get dhcp adress also from WLC..

Is this possible?

regards

Chris

Yes very well possible.

Re:guest auth. over flexconnect and dhcp server on WLC in centra

okay

how to do this? in my case it does not work, client does not get an IP from WLC...

Do i need sort of a dummy interface for this flexconnect WLAN?

regards

Re:guest auth. over flexconnect and dhcp server on WLC in centra

Is the client traffic backhauled to the WLC? That's the only way that would work.

Normally the client will get DHCP from the local subnet if you are looking to keep the guest local.

okay

I have my DHCP on the WLC, but i have 2 scopes on the WLC, one for guest users at Central site, and one scope for the guest users at the branch site..

I have configured a "dummy" interface with IP Adresses from the branch guest site and mapped this to the WLAN ID but it does not changed anything..

Re: Re:guest auth. over flexconnect and dhcp server on WLC in ce

So you are using FlexConnect AP's and you guest SSID is locally switched and centrally switched and you want the WLC to hand out DHCP address to guest that are locally switched and centrally switched. The central switched works and the locally switched doesn't?

Make sure the interface has the WLC management IP address as the primary DHCP server. If both DHCP scopes are not working, then make sure that DHCP proxy is also enabled.

Re:guest auth. over flexconnect and dhcp server on WLC in centra

You can still "local switch" the client data, yet "central process DHCP".  On the WLAN you will want to select the option i the advanced tab to utilize "Central DHCP Processing"

The AP will forward the DHCP traffic back up to the WLC and once it passes through the DHCP_REQD state and the address is learned, the client will move on to locally switching its data traffic.

"When you enable this feature, the DHCP packets received from AP are  centrally switched to the controller and then forwarded to the  corresponding VLAN based on the AP and the SSID"

In this case, the WLC will deliver the DHCP via bridged mode or DHCP proxy utilizing the mapped interface to the said Flex WLAN.  You will want to ensure that the client obtains a usable address that will correspond with the network the client will be switching on locally at that site.

Re: Re:guest auth. over flexconnect and dhcp server on WLC in ce

--disable the local switching on the WLAN,

--configure the DHCP for guest-branch interface, either (local DHCP scope on the WLC with enabling the DHCP proxy and the DHCP server ip on the interface would be the mgmt interface of the WLC) or disable the DHCP proxy with external DHCP server.

--if you had already do the above and the clients still not getting ip address , share >debug client

Cisco Employee

can you please confirm this

can you please confirm this:

you want the client to get ip address from the WLC ,

but do you want the clients to access only the local network ?

or the clients should access the local and central networks ?

​1. yes client ip from WLC at

​1. yes client ip from WLC at central site

​2. client access both networks, but more local applications.

​networks are connected via vpn and checkpoint firewalls

Cisco Employee

so then you want the split

so then you want the split tunnel feature , 

 

you can use the link below to help you configuring this :

http://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/support/docs/wireless/flex-7500-series-wireless-controllers/112973-flex7500-wbc-guide-00.html#split

this feature allow you to create flexconnect ACL and map this ACL with WLAN on specific AP ,

if the packet is permit according the ACL then this packet will switched localy , if not the packet will be forwarded centrally to the WLC. 

 

i hope this will be useful 

 

thank you

Hi Christian,It's a long time

Hi Christian,

It's a long time this discussion has been opened.

Did you manage to get an IP address from the  Local DHCP server (WLC) for guest users on branch ?

I'll be interested by your feedback

Regards,

 

Hervé
