OEAP and remote lan anchoring

Hi all,

can someone explain how to configure anchoring on a 'remote lan' wlan for the OE-solution?

That's my setup:

- DMZ:

2504-CTR with code 7.3.101.0

- Internal

5508-CTR with code 7.3.101.0

I've configured two WLAN's and anchored it to the internal Controlller => everything works fine

I also want to use the Remote Lan Port on the OEAP600. I've created a new WLAN on the DMZ-CTR and choosed Remote Lan from the drop down menu. On the internal CTR I've created also a new WLAN, choosed Guest Lan from the menu and mapped the egress-interface to an existing Wired-Interface.

When I now want to configure the anchor on the newly created remote lan on the DMZ-CTR, the problem is, that the menu is only showing 'remove', there is nothing with 'mobility anchor' or something like that.

So how can I create the EoIP-tunnel for the remote lan?

Thanks, Florian

Re: OEAP and remote lan anchoring

They removed that feature starting on v7.2. I was told from TAC that it was broke and that it was decided to be removed. I have remote lans configured on v7.3, but it was because it was in place when the WLC's were running v7.0.x. They told me not to do the reverse tunnel like what your trying to do, but open the FW to the internal WLC and have that WLC manage the OEAP's.

I don't line the idea that they did this, because it does work but now I can't add, modify or delete the remote LAN.

Whether the option is available/not, Mobility anchor option from remote-lan is not a supported feature.

It isn't supported now, but it was in v7.0 when OEAP 600 first came out. I was working with this with Wesley when he was in the BU because how this was proposed before was to use the existing DMZ guest WLC for your OEAP, now you have to open up ports to your internal WLC which made some of my clients kind of mad. Again... I know it's not supported anymore.

Sure Scott, to my knowledge this is never a tested/supported feature(however i could be little wrong here) and it may/may not work, however don't have a 7.0 doc saying it though. If it was a working feature then there is no reason to remove this feature unless there is security concern.

Saravanan,

The funny thing is it is working fine and we are even running the beta code for testing. Its just that if I have to make changes, well... I just downgrade and then make my changes then upgrade again:)

Thanks,

Scott

Re: OEAP and remote lan anchoring

You're absolutely right! I've downgraded to 7.0.235.3 and it works without problems.
So let me summary:
If you want to use the remote lan port on the OEAP
1) you have to open the capwap-ports to the inside controller or
2) place a separate WLC in the inside-network (if you don't want to mix internal and OEAP's on one WLC) or
3) install 7.0.x on the dmz-wlc and anchor it to the inside (which is not supported, but that's what most of our clients want to do), upgrade to 7.3 again and hope you have no changes in future.

Right?

Re: OEAP and remote lan anchoring

That's right and that is what I do for our engineer to access our lab. Just remember, don't call TAC for support as it is not supported:)

OEAP and remote lan anchoring

Hi Guy's,

Very interesting thread.

Have you heard anything about re-instating the ability to 'reverse-anchor' the remote LAN in future code versions? I would like to extend out my customers Voice vlan to the Remote LAN port on the OEAP by anchoring the DMZ controller to one of the 'inside' controllers as it's much 'cleaner' than messing with firewall rules.

I don't want to downgrade due to the Windows 8 bug in earlier releases (i'm on 7.3 right now).

Cheers,

Re: OEAP and remote lan anchoring

Don't think it will happen. They removed it and seems like that's the end of it.
