Cisco Aironet 1024n Configuration

Posted on 2012-03-22
Last Modified: 2013-02-20
Hi all,

We are using a Cisco Aironet 1024n device. What we want to do is use the local Radius server on the access point. If we try and connect through EAP we have a problem. I can fill in the username and password but no connection is made after that

When we use the open+shared key connection we get a normal connection.

I'm sure I'm missing something here but I can't figure out what, anyone with any idea's we might try?

Many thanks in advance.

Is EPA supported with the integrated radius server? The last time I checked this was not the case.

I followed the instructions but I still can't get it working.

The problem is, when i want to connect to the SSID it gives me a username and password to enter.  When I enter the username and password from the created user (user XXX password XXX group XXX) I still can not connect.

I then run the command: sh radius local-server statistics, and I only get the error from the local radius server: Invalid packet from NAS.

Am I right that the authentication from the NAS to the local radius server is ok?

Any idea what I'm doing wrong?

Have you issued the radius-server local command?
