WAN Configuration

Hi All,

I am just starting in network and have a big task, migrate from Cisco ASA to Meraki MX84

General

Public IP  173.163.123.456

 

WAN

Status:

IP (Static)  173.163.123.456  OR my local firewall IP 192.168.123.456

Re: WAN Configuration

If it is a static IP you should have also gotten the following from the ISP:

  • Subnet mask
  • Gateway
  • Primary DNS
  • Secondary DNS

If you don't have those I would recommend calling the ISP and asking for that information. 

 

 

On the other hand if you do not have a static IP from the ISP then you would need to leave your MX WAN setting as DHCP.

Re: WAN Configuration

Are you supplied with a static IP from your ISP? If you ware you would likely want to make sure your MX is set up in NAT mode and you would then use the static IP settings from your ISP to configure the WAN on your MX. (That would mean the static IP from the ISP is your public IP)

OK, lets say that the public IP from the ISP is 173.163.123.456 then

 

General

Public IP  173.163.123.456

 

WAN

Status:

IP (Static)  173.163.123.456 

 

will be correct, thanks !!

Re: WAN Configuration

Now I have 10+ Vlans on my Cisco Core

Do I need to create the same Vlans on the MX or they will be static routes

or since the core will be directly connected to the MX there is no need

Kind of a big deal

Re: WAN Configuration

If your core Cisco switch has a default route pointing at the ASA's "inside" (LAN) IP, then you can replicate that on the MX using the "use a single LAN" option. You would create a "Local LAN" that matches the ASA's inside IP and then create static routes for all of your internal subnets and put the Cisco switch IP as the next hop.
