Configure Wireless WAN
Applicable Version: 10.00 onwards (Wireless Series of Cyberoam Appliances only)
 
Overview
 
Wireless WAN is wide area network (WAN) for data that is typically provided by the cellular carriers to transmit a wireless signal over a range of several miles to a mobile device. WWAN connectivity allows a user with a laptop and a WWAN support to use the web, or connect to a VPN from anywhere within the regional boundaries of cellular service. They are popularly known as "wireless broadband".

This article describes how you can configure WWAN in Cyberoam.
 

Prerequisites

Cyberoam should be deployed in Gateway Mode.

Scenario

- Configure WWAN in Cyberoam.
 

- USB modems which include functionality that has plug and play software installation or TRU-Install Feature,  will require to be disabled before attempting to install the modem on a Cyberoam Appliance.

 

Configuration

You can configure WWAN in Two (2) ways:

-       Importing Recommended Settings
-       Manually 
 
Importing Recommended Settings
 
This feature is applicable from Cyberoam Firmware version 10.04.0 Build 304 onwards. Using this feature, Cyberoam automatically detects settings of any
3G/4G modem that is plugged in, which can then directly be imported into WWAN configurations. You can import settings by following steps given below.

Step1: Enable WWAN from CLI

·                  
Logon to CLI Console (Telnet or SSH)

·                   Choose option 4 – Cyberoam Console and press Enter

·                   Execute the following command
 
      console> cyberoam wwan enable
 
         
 
Step 2: Connect 3G/4G Modem
 
Connect your Modem to Cyberoam’s USB Port. 
 
Step 3: Import/Load Recommended Settings
 
Go to Network > Wireless WAN > Settings and click Show Recommended Configuration to view modem settings. 
 
 
 
The recommended configuration is displayed. Click Load Recommended Configuration to import modem settings. 
 
 
 
 
Click Apply to save settings.

 

Note:

 

If SIM PIN is enabled in your Modem, specify the SIM Card PIN Code under General Settings and then click Apply.

Step 4: Connect to the Internet

Go to Network > Wireless WAN > Status and click Connect to connect to the Internet using plugged-in modem.
 
 
 
 
 Manual Configuration
 
You can manually configure WWAN settings by following the steps given below. 

Step1: Enable WWAN from CLI

·                  
Logon to CLI Console (Telnet or SSH)

·                   Choose option 4 – Cyberoam Console and press Enter

·                   Execute the following command
 
      console> cyberoam wwan enable

Click Apply to save the Wireless WAN settings.

Note:

-       Once WWAN is enabled from Cyberoam Telnet Console, a default interface named WWAN1 is created as the member of the WAN zone.
-       As WWAN interface is a member of WAN zone:
  o    All the services enabled for the WAN zone from the Appliance Access page are automatically applicable on WWAN1 connection too.
  o    All the firewall rules applied on WAN zone will be applied on WWAN interface.
-       A default host named ##WWAN1 is created and firewall rule and VPN policies can be created for the default host.
-       By default, WWAN1 gateway is added as Backup gateway.
-       When the Wireless WAN is disabled from Cyberoam Telnet Console, Wireless WAN menu, default host ##WWAN1and WWAN gateway options will be removed from Web Admin Console.
 
 
Step 3: Connect to the Internet
 
Go to Network > Wireless WAN > Status and click Connect to connect to the Internet using plugged-in modem.  
 
 
 
 
Note:
 
-       High Availability (HA) is not supported when Wireless WAN is enabled.
-       DHCP Server configuration is not supported for WWAN interface.
-       If Cyberoam backup is taken from a system where WWAN is enabled and restored on a system where it is not enabled, WWAN configuration would still be visible.
