Need help setting up RADIUS for Cisco wireless Access Point
Posted on 2012-03-27
I have a Cisco Aironet AP operating in H-REAP mode with Local Authentication (clients simply use the Pre-Shared Key) and Local Switching. I want to setup RADIUS authentication so that wireless clients authenticate against Active Directory through the Wireless Controller. So what i want is "Central Authentication, Local Switching".
- How do clients provide their username/password? Can authentication happen silently using the user's domain account from the client?
- Is the PSK independent of using RADIUS? Can I have both? Do i have to use RADIUS-only without a Pre-Shared Key?
