Guest SSID and MX84 appliance

Hi all,e

 

We have 27 MR33 AP's deployed at one of our manufacturing sites. We drop all the company traffic onto the local network. We have a guest SSID which is currently on our current Cisco kit. We are looking at moving this onto the new meraki kit.


We are looking at purchasing an MX84 security appliance to provide DHCP and internet access to the guest SSID. The MX84 appliance would be located in our data centre. We’d like to tunnel the guest SSID to the MX84 appliance in the data centre for DHCP internet access.


Would the MX84 appliance support this. I have seen someone referring to VPN – tunnel data to a concentrator and does the MX84 support this function.

 

Thanks

Dave

Note that the MX must run in VPN concentrator mode to do this.  This means you can't use things like content filtering and the like.

Hi Philip,

Thanks for the information handy to know.
