Guest Internet across multiple controllers

roger perkin

I am about to deploy a multi-controller wireless network using the 5508s

I am going to configure the head office controller to be the Guest Anchor.

My question is on the remote site controllers, I want the guest traffic to tunnel from the remote site to the guest anchor.

How do I configure the Guest Interface on the remote controller?

 

Thanks

When I do guest anchoring, I like to create a dummy interface on the 'remote' WLC. This way if the anchoring doesn't work they don't get an address on the network at all.

 

In the WLAN, you link it to the dummy interface. Then when you set the anchoring, point it to the DMZ. This anchoring overrides the interface configured in the WLAN.

Thanks for the info, I don't see that documented in the configuration guide!

So create an interface and give it an ip of 1.2.3.4?

I have only got one controller right now but am getting more tmw, so can try this out

 

Thanks

Agree 100% with Steve.

Always create a dummy interface on your foreign (remote) WLC as the WLAN will default to the management interface. If you lose the EOIP tunnel to your anchor controller your guests will then be able to connect to your management WLAN which will not be good.
