WAN connection Issue

WAN connection Issue

We have MPLS and Internet line.

So, I'd like to do setting on MX.

But because of IP issue, I have to set MS device in front of WANs.

I'd like to know whether this is working well or not.

Please refer the below connection.


MRs---MS C---MX---MS A ---Internet

                             ---MS B ---MPLS


In case of MX, I will set load balancing.

Thank you,


Waiting for your good solutions.


Kind of a big deal

Re: WAN connection Issue

How do you want the data to flow on the MPLS line?


Are you using it as a secondary WAN, or is it for private traffic only?


In terms of putting a switch in front of the MX, so long as you've got your VLANs setup, that's fine. I've got a client where we're splitting an ISP between multiple firewalls, so we setup a vlan for switchports in use with that ISP.

Kind of a big deal

Re: WAN connection Issue

If you're connecting the MPLS to a WAN port keep in mind the MX requires Internet access on WAN ports. If you have private MPLS connected to a WAN port things may not work the way you expect them to.

Thank you for your comment.


I'd like to use the traffic both of them.

In case of internet traffic will connect site-to-stie VPN.

Please refer the below information.


MRs---MS C---MX---MS A --------------Internet---MX

                             ---MS B --- Router ---MPLS---Router


I know Meraki can't control mpls protocol directly so I will install router in front of Meraki device.


In this case, should ISP set vlan for Meraki MS ?
