    i have meraki in the school i support, i dont manage the smoothwall that is in place but i did get the below information, hope this helps!

    “Because we use high-availability alternatives with data centers all around the world, the IP addresses could very well change. So, you would need to allow outbound access for any remote IP address, and filter by ports. So for your iOS devices, you'd have to allow from any source, to any destination, for all TCP and UDP traffic through the ports listed on our firewall configurations (443; 2195; 2196; 5223). Basically, while the IPs can change, the ports will never change.

    That just makes creating firewall rules even more difficult if that's the case.

    It would be better to create rules to an IP range or to a URL. Opening the ports for anything isn't a good idea. This is exactly how the likes of malware or other nasties can get onto a network.

    i agree completely, unfortunatly i inherited the Ipads and had to provide a solution without any cost. this was the only solution, except spending half a day updating the ipads every week.

    Got one of their free MR12 Access Points and that works fine here after Link did the changes at their end.

    Trying one of the Meraki switches at the moment, so currently awaiting the firewall change to see if that has any luck working.

    So are you saying that to get Meraki working you've had to install Meraki hardware?

    i havent got any meraki hardware and mine is working. Generally speaking its down to your Firewall or Proxy.

    A few months ago I got the free AP you get for sitting through a sales pitch webinar. When I plugged that in and added the device in the dashboard it said it couldn't communicate with it. Once Link opened required ports on the firewall for the IP address of the AP, it appeared in the dashboard and allowed me to do all the various stuff I needed.

    Depending on what Meraki Product you are trying to use depends on what the requirements. So hardware is involved to manage to product (obviously if you have a meraki AP or switch then you need those)

    Any questions on the products let me know as I did the course last week

    Outbound requirements (as of 05/03/2013) are as follows:

    Meraki Cloud

    All Meraki devices in this organization initiate outbound management connections to the Meraki cloud using the following addresses and ports:
    IP Addresses: 64.156.192.245, 64.156.192.80, 72.249.183.149, 74.50.51.16, 64.62.142.12, 64.62.142.2
    UDP ports: 7351
    TCP ports: 80, 443, 7734, 7752

    NTP

    Meraki devices in this organization will synchronize time with the following addresses:
    IP Addresses: 0.pool.ntp.org, 1.pool.ntp.org, 2.pool.ntp.org
    UDP ports: 123

    Other Features

    The following features require opening additional ports for communication:

    Meraki VPN: UDP port 9350
    Systems Manager

    Clients using Meraki Systems Manager initiate outbound management connections to the Meraki cloud using the following addresses and ports:

    Mac/Windows

    64.156.192.80, 64.156.192.81, 72.249.183.149, 72.249.183.150, *.amazon.com - TCP ports 80, 443, 993, 60000-61000
    iOS

    64.156.192.80, 72.249.183.149, 50.18.152.159 - TCP port 443
    * - TCP ports 2196, 2196, 5223

    Android

    64.156.192.80, 72.249.183.149 - TCP port 443
    * - TCP port 5228
