I am looking for information for Meraki firewall port numbering.
Diagramming a network, and the LLDP information is not making sense. It looks like I have two MS switches connecting to the same port (port 2). I do not have physical access today.
This is what I believe is correct.
WAN 0 is "Internet, 1 on front of box" or is it "portId":"0"
WAN 1 is "2 on front of box" ....No other option, right?
Here is where my doubt began:
Another device's LLDP says that it is connected to "portId 2" of the MX100. Could this really be port "3" that is number on the front. 0-3 = 1,2
Note: the firewall does not list this meraki switch as a connection.
But that should not matter, should it? It is the actual port numbering that I am looking to understand. Seems that the "portid" start with 0, but it doesn't match the actual printed number on the front.
@bluecavalry if it were fiber transceivers between the MS and MX that would matter.
I have several MS switches that do not have a clue being connected to an MX.
Now regarding your question about the lldp data.
checked a network and here the switch is connected to LAN Port 4 of the MX100
|System name||Meraki MX100 - MX100|
|System description||Meraki MX100 Cloud Managed Router|
|Port description||lan port 2|
I have another switch on port 3 which is connected to lan port 1 (port 3 on the front of the MX)
This is because LAN 2 is configured as internet. So i guess numbering depends on the fact of having 2 WAN Ports or not.
