I have a virtual VX9000 controller, a 7522 ap and an ISP static ip.

Hi Ronaldo,

could you give me a little wider description of what you are about to do?
As VX9000 is virtualized machine, you always need to think about hypervisor.

If this is in house server you need to prepare the connection to assign external IP, if this is cloud based installation, you might have this directly.

Either or, please find VX9000 installation guide here so you can learn a little more on how to setup VX while installing or here to find system reference guide for general release WiNG 5.8 (not sure what version you have).
If there are not other restrictions, you may assign manual IP address to your VX VLAN and have it accessible publicly.

Then you'll just pre-stage APs or let them use DHCP option 191 to find controller.
Little outdated, yet valid documentation to be found here

EDIT: Option 60 is not valid anymore. This is changed to WiNG.<platform> I believe.

Regards,
Ondrej

What we are trying to achieve is that vx9000 should not be connected to the existing private network. We will be having a dedicated leased line from our ISP to be configured on it. Then connect some APs for internet distribution. I'm not sure if you get what I am trying to say, my English is not that good. i am also new to wireless technology. Thanks

I am testing via a laptop by the way. VX9000 is installed on the same laptop as a virtual machine. The laptop, AP, and the ISP cable are inserted on one same PoE switch. this is my set up. Will this work?

Also, I noticed in your diagram that VX9000 is in the same network segment as the ISP?

Hi Ronaldo,

I am afraid that the part of hypervisor is out of my scope and level of knowledge.
You could do a simple routing rules on your VM server and VX9000 will be easily accessible from ISP side, but again - this is out of VX configuration scope.

In the end, only thing that matters here is how physical connection traverses the hypervisor to the virtual machine. WiNG system is ready to use whatever IP address you supply it with.

Ondrej

Hi,
do you solve the problem? You need to separate all the networks.

Adoption via fix ISP IP can be done like internal, DHCP, DNS or static AP entry (pre-staged).

If you test it with one Switch, you can create VLANs to separate all traffics between VX, internal network an AP network.
