I've been a Meraki MX user since Nov '14 and I think it's a great product but it lacked a community for it's users to collaborate on the direction we want the product to go in with new features. I want this to get the attention of Meraki and hopefully they'll join us in implementing these features.

1/4/16 Update: Meraki has begun responding to various posts!

Right now this site running on the free version of UserEcho so it doesn't have some features I'd like it to have (such as tagging).

Alert when WAN 2 goes down

Rob Geoghan 2 years ago • updated by MP-DTC 5 months ago 1

You can't set alerts on the secondary WAN connection. It would really suck to be paying for a secondary WAN connection only to not notice that it went down for a long time without you noticing it.


Two factor authentication for client VPN using Active Directory

I'd like it to send a text or email to allow connecting to the client VPN.

Labeling ports on MX

I wish I could label the physical ports on the MX from the security appliance page or have it display the client name of the device connected to that port.


NAC on switches

You have NAC built-in to the wireless side of the house, but not easily doable with the switch side of the house. Our network is airgapped and wireless is totally physically segregated from the corporate LAN. We would love to utilize Meraki for NAC at the switch level, even with a simple whitelist, but the functionality doesn't exist.


Include blocked viruses in security reports

Rob Geoghan 3 years ago • updated 2 years ago 5
Currently blocked viruses only show up in the event log instead of the security logs.  The security logs only include IDS/IPS events.

Include basic environmental monitoring

Rob Geoghan 3 years ago • updated 3 years ago 2
Since any environmental monitoring (temp, humidity, water) needs to communicate with the internet to get it's message out why not include it at the firewall level.  This could be integrated in future models or be retrofitted to share the USB port and be an external add on.

Allow configurable cellular connectivity alerts

Rob Geoghan 2 years ago • updated by Cisco Meraki 2 years ago 1

Cellular connections are intended to only be backups. I don't want to get an email that the connection has gone down for 2 minutes. I'd like to be able to adjust sensitivity on that alert to alert me only if the cellular connection has gone down for an extended period.
Example: After a MX firmware upgrade my UML290 modem needed to have it's firmware upgraded to connect. Since I didn't have an alert for this setting I went a few months without knowing that my cellular connection wasn't going to be there if I needed it.


Site-to-Site VPN Translation

CedTech 12 months ago 0

I would like to see Meraki implement Site-to-Site VPN Translation for non-Meraki firewalls.

I have VPN with multiple third party firewalls through vendors that I share info with and I think is crazy that Meraki does not offer this feature since its common on all modern firewalls.

This feature currently only works for Meraki to Meraki firewalls and no everyone will have a Meraki firewall


Show upload and download separately in graphs

Rob Geoghan 2 years ago • updated 2 years ago 1
With the recent introduction of Netflow support said this is possible by setting up an external server but one of the best things about Meraki is a single interface for the small shops that don't want to be setting up external monitoring servers when it could be builtin.

Basic print server function

For those remote offices that have slow WAN connections setting up and deploying printers can be a a chore.  If this can be implemented well/easily it would be great.
