Introduction

FlexConnect is a wireless solution for branch office and remote office deployments. Prior to WLC Release 7.2, FlexConnect was referred as Hybrid REAP (HREAP). Now it is called FlexConnect.

FlexConnect feature enables customers to configure and control Access Points through a wide area network (WAN) link without deploying a controller in each branch office. The FlexConnect access points can switch client data traffic and perform client authentication locally when their connection to the controller is lost. When they are connected to the controller, they can also send traffic back to the controller. In the connected mode, the FlexConnect access point can

also perform local authentication.

FlexConnect is supported on the Cisco Aironet 1130AG, 1140, 1240, 1250, 1260, AP801, AP802, AP3550, and Cisco Aironet 600 Series OfficeExtend Access Points on the Cisco WiSM, Cisco 5500, 4400, 2100, 2500, and Flex 7500 Series Controllers, the Catalyst 3750G Integrated Wireless LAN Controller Switch; the Controller Network Module for Integrated Services Routers.

Hi

I configured flexconnect as described. But my clients dont't have connectivity to the local network.

I used vlan 2334 vor Clients and vlan 186 as native vlan,

I've got some additional information on my problem:

I checked the MAC addresse on the switch interface. There is no mac address entry on the client vlan.

The switch configuration ist correct. I don't use any authentication on the wirless LAN.

Has someone an idea why my setup is not working?

I also tried a vlan number 310 (standard vlan instead of extended vlans) for clients -> no difference

Thanks for your support.

Thanks for your help.

Here ist the switch config. The AP is working fine. I have access to the AP, but client traffic is obviousliy not bridged to vlan 2335. I set the AP mode flex connect and the native vlan to 310. In the vlan mapping section on the AP, I set the SSID to vlan 2335.

I would test with a vlan that has a lower id. I never used vlans above 999 to be honest. This will just prove of its the high vlan id or not. I woul also remove the port security on the trunk port.

Hi Scott

I already checked with vlan id 331. But the port-security is a good hint.

I just checked the switch and saw that Security-Violation counters are at a high level on that port. I'm pretty sure that port-securtiy is the problem. I'm sorry, just wasn't aware of this configuration. I will test it tomorow and give a feedback.

Hi Markus/Scott,

Where is the configuration of the swith took placed? the access switch that connect directly to AP or at the core/distribution switch? I have 40 APs at remote site which the controller resides at HQ. The connection between APs and controller seems ok. The APs got the dynamic ip address and joined the controller. Sadly, the clients at remote site do not get the ip address after connected to the SSID. The WAN connection between the HQ & remote site is using access port via MetroE network.

Please help me to rectify this problem. Thank you in advance.

Do your remote users reside in seperate VLAN to what the Access Points are in ?

If so, for the customers to get an IP from there specific VLAN, you sould either have a dhcp ip-helper address defined on the local router (remote router) or have DHCP server available locally.

mvoegtlin 2 years ago (reply to rasyadanr)

Hi Rasyadan

On the access switch you have to configure the access VLAN (L2).

On the next hop (L3) you have to configure the IP-Helper for the dhcp server.

The configuration is similar to “normal” wired switched environment.

Using flex connect, IP-Helper addresses configured on the controller have no effect.

Great document, I do have a question about this part:

Select the VLAN Support check box and enter the number of the native VLAN on the remote network (such as 100) in the Native VLAN ID text box.

This Native VLAN that I define here on the 5508 WLC at the corporate site this would be the native VLAN of the remote site not the Corporate site correct?

FlexConnect group what is that for exactly?

Also 5508 supports 100 AP groups and 25 AP's per group so that equates to 2500 AP's however max AP support on 5508 is 500 AP's. Can someone confirm what is the exact number?

Hi there,

Configuration it seems not so complicated, I am goint to implement it next wednesday on the remote office, on the central office they have a virtual WLC with the latest release 7.6.100. reading this document, I get a little doubts,

1.- If the AP is on remote office, How can I tell to the AP that look for virtual WLC that is on central office to get registered? if the AP look for VWLC locally (making broadcast that no pass over the WAN link).

2.- How the virutal WLC will know that the native vlan specified (for the AP) on this configuration example is across the WAN link?

3.- What considerations we neet to take making reference to routing (on switch core of the remote office, radius servers and certificates)

4.- We need to create interfaces on the virtual WLC?

Thanks a lot for yor inputs. I will apreciate so much.
