Watchguard XTM525 user and visitor network

Hello,

We are trying to set up a visitors network on our Watchguard XTM525. At the moment it's configured as a cluster for failover in case one dies.

What we have now is our business corporate fiber line, which we use as our main connection. Then we have a simple end-user line that we use for our current visitor network. Which is nothing more then two old routers that are set up as an access point.

I have already configured a VLAN that routes the traffic from the simple end-user line through our switches straight to the XTM ETH2 and this works. I receive an IP from our local ISP and the old setup is Incorporated in it for the moment.

So I know for sure that the switches are all ready. Now I only need to configure the watchguard.


I have enabled two SSID's on it. One for our regular network and a visitors network. Both are visible. The regular network for our users works as well like it should (receiving an IP from our LAN range etc...). Now the visitors network isn't working (No IP from our local ISP).

I have configured it as such and it's on VLAN 60, same as on the switches and assigned it to ETH2.
But when I try to enable ETH2, our VPN IPSEC tunnels stop working, since it tries to route all our traffic trough the public ISP...



In a recap:
We wish to set up our watchguard to handle our wireless network as well and provide our user with two types of network. 1 for the company LAN and 1 visitors network that goes through a separate network so it isn't going our default one.



Does somebody has any experience with this?

Thank you & sincerely,

Laurens

Solved.

The solution is actually quite easy.

1) Set up the watchguard with two SSID's and tag one SSID with the VLAN you wish to use for it
2) Then pull the VLAN through your network
3) Tag the port on which the AP is connected with the VLAN for the visitors and untagg the port in your private VLAN

This will enable your port to be tagged for the visitors network and untagged for your private network.
