Use Ruckus AP on remote site

Hi, We have Ruckus vSZ with R510 AP on main site. We have a school play field few miles away. Over there we have business broadband connection with ISP supplied router that has built-in WiFi. Users visiting there use WPA key to connect to the WiFi to use the internet.

Is there a way I can use the Ruckus AP over there to connect to the vSZ on the main site?

Can I connect Ruckus AP over the internet to connect to the main site vSZ?

Any help would be much appreciated, thank you.

Hi Bicky,

As long as AP can reach vSZ's control plane IP (for remote site, you have to use a site to site VPN or public IP should be configured on vSZ's Control NAT settings), you can connect the AP from any site.

List of ports which should be allowed in the network path (on firewall/router/gateway) can be found on below link.

Note: vSZ-Dataplane (vDP) is only required if you want to tunnel the user traffic from remote site to main site. If you just need to bridge the traffic, vDP is not required.

Yes you can do that, if your vSZ is behind nat you need to open few TCP ports at main sites and you can connect AP-s everywhere and behind NAT. You can even tunnel your data to central site using may be better firewall or providing better local security , in this case you need virtual dataplane license and virtual machine.
