Cisco WLC 2504 manage it via dynamic interface (vlan interface)

Hi folks!

 

I have cisco wlc 2504 and I want to manage it via a vlan interface.

The IP address assigned to the vlan interface responds to my ping.

 

Hover, I can't SSH to it and can't HTTPS to it.

There is no access-list attached to the vlan interface.

 

Buy the way, I can manage WLC if I will get myself connected to a wireless network (both SSH and HTTPS).


I tried to run that command: 

config network mgmt-via-dynamic-interface enable

However, it did not work.

Shall I get rid of that WLC and use Meraki instead?

As far as I remember that is not possible. You must use (for security reasons) the virtual interface named Management.

Hi patoberli,

Thank you for your reply

 

I have checked the link you provided.

 

According to it: "Management Interface. The management interface is the default interface used to access and manage the WLC. The management interface is also used by the access points to communicate with the WLC. The management interface IP address is the only ping-able IP address and is used by administrators to manage the WLC"

 

It is really strange, but I can ping dynamic interface (vlan interface) and management interface as well.

The information at that link is a bit older, it's possible that some details have changed since. It's also well possible that different hardware models behave a little different.
