What is "Bridge Traffic Locally at HWC" mean? What "Interface IP" are they asking for? The IP of my controller? And what do I put for "VLAN ID"? Is that my wireless vlan?
bridge@HWC is the mode were the wireless traffic from the WLAN Guest is transported from the AP within the managment tunnel (CAPWAP) to the HWC (HiPath Wireless Controller - an old term) and then is bridged to a VLAN on the ESA port.
I don't use the VNS wizard as it includes only limited features (to make it easier) so I'd create every building block (=topology, roles, WLAN service, VNS) separate without the wizard.
Interface IP - the IP of the VLAN/WLAN interface of the controller - as it's bridged the wLAN with the wirless clients and the VLAN on the controller ESA port are in the same subnet
VLAN ID - the VLAN ID which is used on the ESA port = the wireless traffic is forwarded to this VLAN on the esa interface.
I'll post a example for a guest portal later on.
BTW, you should upgrade the controller to get the Extreme logo :-)
It depends on your experience. If you have inherited this controller and are just trying to get your head around it I think you should get yourself into one of Extreme's training sessions. You will need to do a 4-5 day session to get you head around this thing even if you have prior networking experience.
If that is not in the cards you should get some help from someone who is familiar with the system. You could hire a consultant or actually hire Extreme to help you. When I first took on my controller I had experience in networking but still needed to go through a training before I was comfortable.
