Authentication throu controler 4402 from remote branch office


We have head office with 4402 controller and few 1130AG series access points. Clients PCs access to wifi network after authentication throu http site (service is woking on 4402 controler).

In other branch (connected to head office throu WAN-VPN) we have one 1130AG AP and we would like to use the same www authentication for clients. Is is possible ? How is the best way to do this ? Can we do this using differents LAN ip addressing for branch AP and clients ?

thanks in advance

Re: Authentication throu controler 4402 from remote branch offic

The ideal solution would be to use the 4402 web-auth page and then route Internet traffic locally, instead of through the VPN. Unfortunatly I'm not aware of such a solution.

If you don't have the remote 1130 AP set to HREAP mode all traffic will be tunneled back to the WLC and clients will be forced to use the web-auth on the 4402.

If you are using HREAP, traffic would get routed locally and not forced to the 4402 page.

Depending on the remote users' traffic patterns and how secure you want authentication/encryption, it might be okay just to tunnel the traffic back. This is also dependant on a good WAN. If it goes down, no wireless access at remote side.
