Re: Deployment a Guest WLAN

The main thing to ask first is if you want all the guest traffic to come back to the WLC at HQ. If you are okay and have the bandwidth for this, then you just centrally switch the guest SSID from the remote locations and all guest will be placed in whatever interface you create for guest at HQ. so you have options, you can locally switch traffic at the remote site, but then you need to ACL the guest subnet so they can't access your internal, except for maybe dhcp or DNS.

The AP's at HQ will be in local mode and the remote site should be in FlexConnect mode.

Do you have internet at each location or does everything come back?

Re: Deployment a Guest WLAN

some sites have their own internet and some of them comeback

Deployment a Guest WLAN

SO you have to decide if the guest traffic will tunnel back to the WLC or not.  The sites that have their own Internet, you would have to create a new subnet/vlan and create an ACL to block the guest user from accessing your internal network.  Even if you have the guest tunnel back to the WLC, you need to have an ACL block guest traffic to your internal.

Re: Deployment a Guest WLAN

So it's posible that one SSID have different adressing? I mean one for my central site, one for my remote site, one for my remote site B etc?

Re: Deployment a Guest WLAN

So the thing is, will you be tunneling the traffic for the guest?  If so, then you will only have one subnet you can put all the guest users if you have one SSID.

Deployment a Guest WLAN

Ok. One question I'm testing this in a lab, right now I'm simulated be on my remote site and I conneted to my SSID FERROMEX, this SSID is centrall switched I have one interface in my WLC on my Central site, the vlan is on my cental site too, and I'm working just fine. I don't have anny ACL's I really need this ACL?

Sorry if my queston is so abviuos, but the is new for me

Re: Deployment a Guest WLAN

What do you mean by this

I have one interface in my WLC on my Central site, the vlan is on my cental site too

The SSID is centrally switched so the only interface that is required is on the WLC. That vlan has to reside in the central site and not needed in the remote site. If your placing internal users and guest users in the same subnet, then you can't use ACL's as the guest will be able to access your internal network also.
