Configuring Split Tunnel Client VPN - Cisco Meraki

Oct 30, 2020
Client VPN Configuration by OS

Welcome to Integrity Hotel Partners, your trusted partner in the business and consumer services industry, specifically in real estate. In this comprehensive guide, we will walk you through the process of configuring split tunnel client VPN connections using the powerful Cisco Meraki platform.

What is Split Tunnel Client VPN?

Before diving into the configuration process, it's important to understand what split tunnel client VPN is and how it can benefit your business. Split tunneling allows remote users to access both their local network and the corporate network simultaneously. This means that only traffic destined for the corporate network is sent through the VPN tunnel, while all other internet traffic is directly routed to the user's local gateway.

The advantage of split tunneling is that it can significantly improve network performance, as it reduces the load on the VPN infrastructure. Additionally, it allows remote workers to access local resources such as printers, file servers, or other devices, without slowing down their internet connection.

Why Choose Cisco Meraki for Split Tunnel Client VPN?

Cisco Meraki is a leader in cloud-managed IT solutions, delivering secure and scalable networking solutions for businesses of all sizes. When it comes to configuring split tunnel client VPN, Cisco Meraki offers a range of advanced features that make the setup process seamless and efficient.

Step-by-Step Guide to Configuring Split Tunnel Client VPN with Cisco Meraki

Follow these steps to configure split tunnel client VPN using Cisco Meraki:

  1. Access the Cisco Meraki Dashboard: Log in to your Cisco Meraki dashboard using your credentials. If you don't have an account, create one.
  2. Navigate to the VPN Settings: Once you're logged in, navigate to the organization or network where you want to configure the split tunnel client VPN. Go to the "Security & SD-WAN" section, and then click on "Client VPN".
  3. Enable Client VPN: Enable the client VPN by clicking on the toggle switch. This will activate the feature for your network.
  4. Configure Networks and Users: Next, configure the networks that should route through the VPN by selecting the desired subnets. You can also set up user accounts and assign access privileges as needed.
  5. Customize Split Tunneling Settings: Cisco Meraki allows for granular control over split tunneling settings. Depending on your requirements, you can choose to route all or specific traffic through the VPN tunnel. Make the necessary selections based on your network architecture.
  6. Apply Changes: Once you've completed the configuration, click on the "Save Changes" button to apply the settings to your Cisco Meraki network.
  7. Test the VPN Connection: It's essential to test the configured split tunnel client VPN to ensure it's functioning correctly. Connect a client device using the provided settings and verify that both local and corporate network resources are accessible without any issues.

The Benefits of Split Tunnel Client VPN

Implementing split tunnel client VPN using Cisco Meraki can bring several benefits to your organization:

  • Enhanced Performance: By selectively sending only corporate-bound traffic through the VPN tunnel, split tunneling significantly improves network performance and reduces latency.
  • Resource Accessibility: Remote workers can seamlessly access local resources such as printers, file servers, and other devices without any additional steps or slowdowns.
  • Secure Connection: Cisco Meraki ensures that all VPN connections are encrypted and secure, protecting sensitive data from unauthorized access.
  • Improved User Experience: With split tunneling, users can enjoy a faster internet connection for non-corporate activities, resulting in an overall improved user experience.


In conclusion, configuring split tunnel client VPN with Cisco Meraki provides a secure and optimized remote network access solution for your business. By following our step-by-step guide, you'll be able to set up split tunneling efficiently and enjoy the benefits it brings.
