Using the Cisco Meraki Device Local Status Page
Posted: 21 May 2015 11:05 AM

All Cisco Meraki devices have a local status page that can be accessed to perform limited local configuration changes, monitor device status and utilization, and simple local troubleshooting. This article provides instructions on how to access the local status page, functions/information available on it, and how to limit access.

Accessing the Local Status Page

The local status page of any Cisco Meraki device is accessible via the web browser of a host machine. To reach MR devices, the client must be wirelessly connected to the AP (using a configured SSID or the 'meraki-setup' SSID), but MS and MX/Z1 devices can be accessed by any device with access to their LAN IP. This is done by entering the LAN IP address in the URL bar of a web browser. Additionally, each device can be accessed by DNS name from a client whose traffic passes through it, by browsing to the following URLs from the client. This can be useful for determining what AP/Switch/Firewall a client's traffic is going through to reach the Internet. 

 

In some cases, access by DNS name is not possible. In those cases, access to the devices is still possible by IP address. This is particularly useful when configuring a device for the first time on a network without DHCP, or when connecting directly into the device prior to connecting to the network. 

 

  • MR-Specific - 10.128.128.126
    In order to access this address, configure a device with the following IP settings, and then browse the the address in a web browser.
    IP Address: 10.128.128.125
    Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
     
  • MS-Specific - 1.1.1.100
    In order to access this address, configure a device with the following IP settings, and then browse the the address in a web browser.
    IP Address: 1.1.1.99
    Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
     
  • MX/Z1-Specific - Varies
    The MX and Z1 series devices will be reachable at the LAN IP of the VLAN (if configured) the client is located on. By default, MX and Z1 devices run DHCP. Once the client is connected to a LAN interface of the MX or Z1, find the client's IP address and default gateway. Then open the default gateway address in a web browser.
