MX Pass-Through?

MX Pass-Through?

So we have a vendor that installs safety equipment, that equipment needs a router installed by this vendor. For me to VLAN this off on the switch and AP side is easy, but how will I add a router on the inside of my network and not cause issues with the MX? Would it go into a pass-though mode? This will be completely segmented and cut off from my internal network with no communication between our systems and the safety systems is needed. Best case would be I would have two lines coming in but that inst possible. Does the MXs have a pass-through VLAN setting or is there a "best practice" way to do this? I cant be the first one to have this issue.

Re: MX Pass-Through?

You added that equipment and router to a layer2 vlan on switches and ap.

 

why you need to connect that vlan on the mx ? 

 

if you need this , blocking all traffic to your LAN with a acl is not enough? you could also bypass the mx and connect it to internet directly?

Re: MX Pass-Through?

I need to provide a way to the internet from their router. I would like to bypass the MX entirely and connect it to the internet directly but that is not a possibility for me, that is why I am looking for another option. And I can just make deny rules so VlanA cant talk to VlanB and vice versa, but would the MX and the other router cause issues when trying to find a way out to internet? Also this company needs to VPN into their network, so I dont know if the double NAT would allow that.

Currently I am waiting to hear back from them, see if there is a possibility for them to keep the access and functions that they need, and turn off NAT on there router and change gateway address on their DHCP to my MX. Anyone see any problems that would arise from that?
