GX VPN Guide
The GX50 product supports Client VPN and Site-to-Site VPN. This intent of this guide is to explain the differences between these two types of access, how the technology works, and how to configure VPN on Meraki Go GX50s.
- A GX50 is required to use Client VPN
- Two or more GX50s are required for Site-to-Site VPN
- Each GX50 must be in the same company to form a Site-to-Site VPN.
Configure Site-to-Site VPN
- Have multi-site configured (more than one GX50 managed by a single Meraki Go company).
- Enable Site-to-Site VPN via the settings menu: Settings -> Advanced Settings -> Site to Site VPN
- Choose which wired networks (VLANs) will participate in VPN.
- Save changes
- Repeat for all GX50 sites that desire VPN access.
What is VPN?
Virtual Private Networks (VPN) allow you to connect remote locations together over an encrypted channel. This might allow sending print jobs to a priner at an office, allow remote desktop connections, or create an easy path for sharing files between computers. The most common ways to use a VPN include Client VPNs and Site to Site VPNs.
What is Client VPN?
- Client VPN is configured on all end devices (laptops, phones, computers).
- Allows users to access printers, file shares, and computers connected to the GX50 with Client VPN enabled.
- Username and password match your Meraki Go login credentials.
What is Site-to-Site VPN?
- Site to Site VPN is configured on the GX50.
- Allows users from one GX50 location to access resources at another GX50 location.
- No client device configuration necessary.
