Static IP Assignment

MX and Z1 appliances can use either dynamic or static network connection information. You may configure a static IP address on a Cisco Meraki MX or Z1 from Dashboard or locally.

Static IP Assignment via Dashboard

Static IP assignment via the Meraki Dashboard is currenlty only available in beta.

  1. Browse to dashboard.meraki.com and login to Dashboard.
  2. Navigate to Security Appliance > Monitor > Appliance Status and click the uplink tab.


     
  3. The uplink tab allows for viewing status information about the uplinks, as well as performing uplink configuration.


     
  4. Next, click the pencil icon to expand the WAN IP configuration for that uplink.


     
  5. Input the appropriate connection information and click the "Save Changes" button.

If a VLAN is specified in the static IP configuration, traffic from the MX will be sent out tagged with 802.1q for that VLAN.

 

If the MX is not able to reach the default gateway on this static assignment, it will fall back to DHCP. 

Local IP Assignment

  1. Connect a client to the MX. The local status page can be accessed via the management port or via the LAN ports.
  2. Once you have obtained an IP address, browse to the url wired.meraki.com.
  3. On this page, click Configure.
  4. The page should now prompt for login credentials. If local login credentials were configured via Dashboard, please use these credentials. Otherwise, the default login is the device's serial number as the username and a blank password.  
    Each device is labeled with its serial number on the bottom label.
  5. On the Configure page, set the needed connection information.
