SD-WAN

Hi 

 

 

I have a technical question regarding Cisco Meraki SD-WAN MX solution

 

 

We using Terminal server to connect to four different windows server with multiple users.

 

The connect to the terminal server only provide one IP address for the connection so we want to track and report what each users activities are while logged on to the terminal server 

 

 

Is Cisco Meraki MX able to provide reporting that show the activities of that user once they logged onto the terminal server even when all the users are only provided a single and same IP address once connected to any of the terminal server 

 


Thanks 

 

John

I don't think Meraki will be able to track the individual users. Meraki doesn't log user's information in that manner and would likely be masked when they login to the server and just aper as one of the servers.

Re: SD-WAN

I'm pretty sure the answer here is No, it cannot report on that. But can you elaborate on what exactly you mean by "reporting"?

I think @JohnS86 wants to report on who is accessing what in each session.  Most NGFW have a terminal server agent that logs session info against ports and links the users that way.

Re: SD-WAN

You need to enable the "IP Virtualisation" option in your RDS farm.

http://www.virtualizationblog.com/why-we-need-remote-desktop-services-ip-virtualization/ 

 

This assigns each user a different IP address upong connect.  You would need to configure the MX to track users by IP address, and enable AD integration.

Note you can not use a Meraki combined network when doing this.

 

 

So, yes it is possible - but it is a bit of a nightmare.

Hi All 


Thank you for you feedback

We look at the IP Virtualization but the one issue we have is the same IP address might not be assigned to same person every day or the same IP address might be reassigned to other user that was used by previous user

 

So it might hard to track and monitor  

Am not sure if there workaround to resolve this issue   

 

 

Thanks

The Meraki gear would not be able to do this.
