Authenticating wireless clients at remote sites with WPA2 Enterprise

No headers

Network administrators can enforce the same authentication protocol used at the main office at remote sites using site-to-site VPN between Meraki peers. Specifically, wireless clients on the remote side of a site-to-site VPN between an MX Security Appliance and a MX60W or Z1 Teleworker Gateway can be authenticated using WPA2 Enterpise without a RADIUS server on site. 

1. Configure the site-to-site VPN connection.

2. Test the connection to the RADIUS server. 

3. Configure the desired SSIDs with WPA2 Enterprise authentication.

4. Add the MAC address of the Z1 or MX60W as a RADIUS client on your RADIUS server.
