VLAN Communication for two specific end user devices.

Hi, first post. It's a fuzzy one.

 

We have a few VLANs set up in our MX. We need to get two wireless devices to communicate across from VLAN A to VLAN B to a wired controller for another system. The controller needs to be able to also communicate back through to VLAN A for those specific devices. Is it possible with an Meraki MX80 to configure VLAN communication for these devices?

 

thanks

Kind of a big deal

Re: VLAN Communication for two specific end user devices.

As long as the wireless systems supports normal unicast routing and there are no firewall rules blocking the traffic it will work.

You can use routing capabilities of MX from one vlan to communicate with the other one.

Please let me know if this document answers your question.

Re: VLAN Communication for two specific end user devices.

As per the above articles, if VLANs are configured on the MX and no firewalls are in place, Inter-VLAN communication will be available.

 

All that i can see you requiring would be routes from your controller to the MX and from the MX to the controller.
