SonicWaves on Routed Subnets with VAPs
I'm interested in setting up something like what is outlined in this guide: http://help.sonicwall.com/help/sw/eng/6960/25/9/0/content/Ch63_SonicPoint_SonicPoints.071.56.html
We'll have some differences though: Each remote site/subnet has it's own DHCP server and we're wanting to connect the access points run a couple SSIDs. Sites are connected by MPLS.
I suspect that DHCP won't be a problem, assuming that we can hand out the right DHCP option.
Where i'm a bit concerned though, is getting the VAPs to work - the initial ask is for the remote wireless networks to be on the same subnet as the 'hub'.
Has anyone set something up like this?
Is it just a matter of establishing L3 connectivity and pulling the right provisioning profile?
Hope you are doing safe and well.
We apologize for the delay in response.
The scenario thrown by you seems to be bit interesting but the answer may be simple.
As you mentioned, you have to follow the instructions specified in the web-link below for the Sonicpoint Layer 3 Management.
In addition to the above instructions, please follow the steps listed in the below web-link for setting up the Virtual Access Points (VAPs) which is the only additional requirement for your scenario representing Sonicpoint L3 Management.
I hope this helps.
Please feel free to post here for any questions or clarifications.
