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).

WIFI with different external ip

There should be a way to specify a different external IP for Guest WIFI networks. ideally i rather not have the Guests and Local Users on the same External IP


Labeling ports on MX

Rob Geoghan 2 years ago • updated by Stephan Wurzburg 2 years ago 1

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.


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.

Site-to-Site VPN Translation

CedTech 1 year 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


NAC on switches

jingram 2 years ago 0

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

Currently blocked viruses only show up in the event log instead of the security logs.  The security logs only include IDS/IPS events.

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.

Improved event log filtering (some results not even logged)

Rob Geoghan 3 years ago 0
You can't sort or filter the logs very much.  You can only download the 30 results or so to a csv file.  A temporary solution would be to export the entire log file to a csv but the filtering options via the web should be improved.
I've had two cases where the traffic was being blocked by content filtering and a layer 7 rule that weren't even logged.  I figured out the problem but enabling/disabling the features slowly to narrow down the problematic rule.

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.
