CISCO-LWAPP-CONTROLLER

Hello,

I am trying to get this officeextend working.

I connected the ap and checked the H-Reap box and then officeextend and gave it a public ip. This public ip is NAT'd to the dmz controller on the firewall. (The dmz controller is 5508 running code 6.0.199.4)

I have connected this officeextend 1132 ap to a broadband connection and this gets an ip of 192.168.1.23 on its fa0 interface. all good till now.

when i console onto the officeextend 1132 AP, i get an error msg could not resolve Cisco-LWAPP-Controller.abc.uk....domain server (192.168.1.254) and Cisco-CAPWAP-Controller.home.uk...think it needs DNS set to the public ip on the local asdl box, is it ?

if this is the case, I am not sure if i can do this as this is controlled by the ISP

any ideas ?

Re: CISCO-LWAPP-CONTROLLER

Are you translating udp 5247 & 5247 in your FW to point back to the WLC? Also you need to e tee the WLC name and the public NAT'd ip for the primary wlc. If you didn't do that you can always enter that info from the console.

capwap ap controller ip address

Thanks,

Cheers Scott.

I had checked the H-Reap and then tciked on officeextend and gave the officextend DMZ WLC name and public ip address on the AP. Then i connected to the broadband connection and it seems to look for Cisco-LWAPP-Controller.abc.uk.... (abc is my domain name for broadband connection)

And we have two firewalls - the first one being perimeter firewall. I have nat'd this 5246 and 5247 on the perimeter firewall and allowed acl on the outside interface to allow 5246 and 5247 on the internal firewall, hope this is correect ?

Re: CISCO-LWAPP-CONTROLLER

That should be fine. As long as the traffic (udp 5246&5247) gets back to the management interface of the wlc you are fine. Don't worry about the Cisco-lwapp-controller... It's just part of the join process.

CISCO-LWAPP-CONTROLLER

but the problem is the AP when connected to broadband connection gets stuck at Cisco-LWAPP-Controller.abc.uk....

i have entered the public ip and dmz officeextend wlc on the high availablity and checked officeextend and h-reap, anything else i need to do?

I am doing this from scratch again and will update you if i have any success in the meantime do you have any thoughts on the above scott ?


Thanks

Re: CISCO-LWAPP-CONTROLLER

Did you enter the NAT'd public ip address in the management interface? Do you see the translation coming in from the public interface and being sent to the wlc. Try to console into the ap and set the controller ip address (public). I had to do that on a 1131 that I was testing for that to join.

ok thanks will trt this scott and by the way do i need to enter the public ip address (66.111.22.12) on the management interface on the WLC ? bcos i have not done this. i was under the impression that the firewall will nat back to the ip of dmz controller

Re: CISCO-LWAPP-CONTROLLER

Oh no... You need that public ip entered in the management interface.

I have added this now scott on the management interface but still cant get the AP to join the controller. This AP is connected to a broadband wireless router connected back to a ADSL router that has the DNS settings

(also i cant see any traffic hitting on ports 5246 and 5247 on the firewall. so think this AP is not trying to go out )

it comes up with

CAPWAP-5-DHCP_RENEW: Could not discover WLC using DHCP IP. Renewing DHCP IP.

Did you try to enter the following: capwap ap controller ip address 66.111.22.12

Also... what model AP is this?

Re: CISCO-LWAPP-CONTROLLER

yep done this but no joy

these are 1131 ap

Hall of Fame Master

Re: CISCO-LWAPP-CONTROLLER

That is the same AP I used to test with besides an AP600. If you entered that command, you should see something hit your FW on the public side.

Re: CISCO-LWAPP-CONTROLLER

Still no joy

this is the console output for the AP. does this give you any thoughts ?

Re: CISCO-LWAPP-CONTROLLER

Do you see anything hitting your FW? I think that is the key, because if you set the controller public ip address the ap will try to connect to that ip using udp 5246 and the 5247 if data encryption was enabled. From the ap, you should also be able to ping that public ip.

Thanks,
