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).

Improved use of Brightcloud reputation service

Rob Geoghan 3 years ago 0
With the advanced license you get content filtering which checks Brightcloud's database but the Meraki implementation of it is fairly limited.
Yesterday a spam message got through with a link to a domain that came up as suspicious according to (http://www.brightcloud.com/tools/url-ip-lookup.php) This link wasn't blocked by the MX.  The MX should have the ability to make settings that are based on that tools various reporting results.  The URL in question was 0 months old.  To me that's a huge red flag that you shouldn't visit the site.  I'd like to block "new" domains like this.

Ability to set WAN DNS servers with a dynamic WAN IP

Rob Geoghan 3 years ago 0
This is pretty minor but should be easy enough to implement. If you have a dynamic WAN IP from your ISP you can't currently set static DNS servers for the WAN interface.

Ability to search the event logs across all (multiple) networks

If you want to search the event logs you can only do this across one network at a time.  You should be able to do this across all or multiple networks.

ISP subscribed bandwidth monitor

Rob Geoghan 3 years ago 0
The MX should do regular performance tests to make sure that the bandwidth claims from the ISP is accurate.  I once had a scenario that where one of my 3 bonded T1s was down for months and it went unnoticed.  You'd enter the amount of bandwidth your ISP is supposed to be providing and if that number falls by a certain percentage it should trigger an alert.

Browse test from Meraki on MX.

When setting up various policies for content filtering it would be helpful to have a method of testing these settings.  Barracuda refers to this as a Browse Test.

Improve RMA process with MX devices

Rob Geoghan 3 years ago 0
In my case one of the techs that I worked with reported a problem that indicated an RMA should be issued but the tech wasn't the owner of the case so he couldn't issue an RMA. It would also be nice if the RMA device came preloaded with the proper configuration to make the swap more seamless. The method I used was a little cumbersome and some non-essential details weren't copied over. An example of such is name of the device and notes in the appliance status page.

Improved firewall settings to block specific IP address and range

Brandon Svec 3 years ago 0
In configure > firewall it would be nice to not just choose allowed IP access, but also to block specific IP addresses and ranges.  Even better would be to set an adjustable time limit for the block.  The use case would be when seeing hack attempts in a log to be able to block them.

Log internet and network latency

Rob Geoghan 3 years ago • updated 2 years ago 3
I recently had an issue where my Meraki MX slowed to a crawl. I was getting 200-500ms pings to anything behind the MX for 30 minutes and then it resolved itself.
It would have been helpful if I and/or support had logs on the latency between my MX and the internet as well as allowing me to setup logging of latency to other network devices.

Quick access to application policy

I wish I could right click a high usage application (remote desktop) in my case and get options to apply a block, traffic shaping, etc.
