I am very new with meraki devices. Also I am not network guy. I just bought 2 mx68w. They will be located in different cities.
All of the clients from City A should be able to ping to City B.
City A subnet is like that: 220.127.116.11/24 - MX IP is: 18.104.22.168
City B subnet is like that: 22.214.171.124/24 - MX IP is: 126.96.36.199
The problem is, devices connected to meraki cloud, they can ping eachother but users are not able to ping from city a to city B.
This is my fourth sleepless night but i still couldnt fix the issue. Could you please support us in this case?
Thank you in advance.
When you setup your Site-to-Site AutoVPN (Security & SD-WAN -> Configure -> Site-to-Site VPN) you need to ensure that the local network for each location is set to 'VPN on' under VPN Participation. This effectively allows each MX to tell the other about its local networks.
Don't forget - assuming you have paid licensing then you have 365-day per year, 24 x 7 access to Meraki Support, who will help you troubleshoot. Look at Help > Get help, top right of Dashboard, for the various communications options
The configuration looks about right, you should check to see if the VPN is being formed - Security & SD-WAN -> Monitor -> VPN Status. If there is no VPN forming then there is probably something beyond the MX 'blocking' it. And as @GreenMan says, it may also be worth putting a call in to support.
It looks like you're using Public IP addressing inside your private network - which is pretty unusual. How does this compare to the IP addressing your MXs are using on their WAN/Internet links?
There are some PLC and computers on two different sites. These are renewable energy power plant sites.
Their local IPs are like that:
Location A: 143.161.0.XX
Location B: 143.161.5.XX
They said that we can't change the IP addresses of that devices. So that's why I set up vlan like that.
VPN STATUS PAGES:
Everything seems good on that pages but clients are not able to reach to internet for that reason it is not possible to ping between clients from different sites. It is only possible to ping between mx appliances
Good job on solving the Checkpoint issue.
The reason you couldn’t use the /16 is because if you do then the subnets for both locations end up being 188.8.131.52, and you can’t have that if you want to send traffic between them. (Each octet in an IP address is 8 bits, so a /24 means the first three octets define the subnet, whereas a /16 means only the first two octets define the subnet).
If you’re using a /24 at each site, you have 254 available IP addresses per site, so if you’ve only got 20 devices (even 50) that’s more than enough. The VPN can work for all the devices on the network, but that depends on the routing being setup correctly, and the network segmented properly.
