[Wireless] Can't ping WAP 54G over VPN tunnel

Hi everyone,

I have a client with a few WAP 54Gs that I need to monitor for uptime/availability. Let's say the WAPs are in site A.

The probe which monitors them by ICMP is at the far end of a VPN tunnel (Site B). I can ping all 5 of the access points from within site A. From B, I can ping everything else in A- a NAS and a PC. But not these access points.

Does anyone have any experience with this, or know whether there's some configuration of the WAP 54Gs which prevent them from being ping'd from different subnets?

Thanks!

Neil

Page 14 shows how to add a default gateway, if you do not have one, or it is incorrect, you can't manage the WAP from outside the subnet. Setup is on page 21.

Thanks. I was able to get in by adding a NAT rule to the local firewall: any traffic from Site A to the WAPs, rewrite it to appear to be from the local firewall.

Once I got in, I immediately saw the problem as you predicted. No default gateway. D'oh.

Add another one to the "trust, but verify" column. Thanks Jimbo!
