    Could prevent both ways. if the client has to report in to the web and vice versa. We have all outbound connections enabled but didn't setup anything incoming.

    I would think the architecture is that the client talks to the meraki web servers and not the other way round.

    I've just installed it on my PC which has a different direct internet connection via a smoothwall firewall install and it instantly reported itself so something being blocked possibly by or education internet supplier.

    Trouble is getting that info from meraki.

    Installed and working ok here through our LEA connection.

    The iOS control is quite interesting, if a little basic at the moment. Could come in handy, definitely.

    yes it will be - they use Salesforce for all the KB stuff just like Watchguard and others.

    EDIT: thats for there wireless AP as they have a cloud based controller so you can just send a AP to somebody and they can plugin and it finds the controller and can be configured remotely. Which is why we where looking to start with.

    Yeah I read it and saw it was talking about the AP's but I was on the phone to the meraki guy for 20 minutes and that's the article he's linked me to.

    I've just emailed him back to check but as you're still connecting into the meraki cloud infrastructure it could be that it's the same settings.

    It did that here, from conversations with Meraki its hit and miss on location when outside the US.

    We are in the process of becoming a Meraki Partner so hopefully once we have had a chance to play with the wireless and Management more will be able to post information on how it works.
