Hi Matthew, 

 

No the GX does not support site to site VPN, or client VPN.

Re: VPN ??

Hello. Excuse me for cutting in. Is there a roadmap for Meraki Go security appliances to support VPN in the first place?

Re: VPN ??

Yes, PLEASE!  Right now, this is the only thing preventing me from using it more.  The VPN doesn't need to be feature-rich.  Just basic client VPN, using either native Mac/Windows client, or better yet with Cisco AnyConnect.

Re: VPN ??

Sorry to dig up this old topic, but I wanted to verify if this still a limitation of the platform?

Of course, VPN is still not supported. It is about VLAN has been supported by the recent news.Screenshot_20201020_125922_com.meraki.go.jpg

Re: VPN ??

Greetings SO and all on the thread,

 

Supporting VPN can mean a wide range of things. To dispel any existing confusion:

 

  • The GX product cannot be a VPN end-point for client devices or site to site VPN.
  • The GX does allow VPN traffic to pass through it.

What this means is you cannot client VPN to your GX from a remote location, and this would be considered a feature request (or a wish in the app). It is also not possible to link GX's together in a site-to-site VPN topology.

 

However, nothing is stopping clients on your GX network from establishing VPN connections outbound.

 

As an example, while connected to my Meraki Go full stack, I am able to establish a VPN tunnel with my open VPN server and reach tools and resources hosted on that remote network.

 

I hope this post helps clear any confusion around what the GX can and cannot do regarding VPN.
