Setting up 802.1x authentication for wireless clients
Posted on 2009-02-09
I am trying to set our small office up to use 802.1x authentication for wireless clients. I have successfully secured a test wireless AP, which is using RADIUS authentication against a Microsoft IAS server. What I'm trying to set up and discover is how to allow for clients that are members of the domain but not logged in to be able to access the network enough to permit logon and credential verification.
As I understand it, no wireless connection is possible until the user has logged in, which presents issues if a user wants to log into a machine he / she hasn't previously used. What would you recommend I do? I have several wireless APs available to me, so if I need to set up an additional AP to handle this sort of thing it's not a problem.
Thanks in advance!
