Hi experts - I am trying t configure 1 Cisco 1130AG as a local radius server to use in a WDS infrastructure for authentication. My end goal is to have 4 AP's of which one of them is the local radius / WDS - then I want to configure wireless clients to authenticate using EAP - All I can get is "AUTH in PROGR" in the wds status window with an error in the log as follows:  RADIUS server x.x.x.x 1646 has returned:  RADIUS server x.x.x.x 1646 is not responding.

Thanks

Cisco gear can run the client piece of radius but not the server piece, you need a radius server external to the wireless networking equip. If its the price there are several open source variants out there, or you can use Cisco ACS.

Hi Harbour235, Thanks for the info - I have a vendor telling me I can setup the AP as a local radius and WDS without using an external radius - Of course they can't tell me how to make it go! I want them to use Cisco Mobility AP's and controller - Thanks for the reply - All the cisco documentation I've been going never comes right and says that, of course it also never says it can be done! Thanks
