Hi Struggling here - ive created the new ssid - I can connect using wpa - put in password and ok.

What I want is for each device connecting to have a user name and password "ON" the controller:

eg Joe Smith - has account joes on the controller with his own password.

Ive been told LEAP - which i have some concern around all devices working on - thats another question ;)
Ive done the following:  local EAP authentication ticked - and Ive created a profile called LEAP. and I have created a user (all this on the controller) however - when I connect - it does not prompt for a username   - if i turn on wpa2 it prompts for pre shares key but thats not what I want. I want local username to prompt? - where am I going wrong?   thanks

I'm not wanting AD or radius - i need local usernames on the controller. Cisco WIFI controller 2500

Thanks  I did glance at that article. Not fully though :) - this is EAP-FAST is that the way to go?. Do I have to use certificates ? I would really like NOT to use certs AT ALL. though we do have in internal Cert authority. Will avoid at any cost

You can do it with PEAP instead of EAP-FAST using local users.

Go to the Security tab on the WLC, then choose Local EAP from the left-hand menu.
Create a new EAP profile and select the PEAP check-box.
Click on the name of your new profile to view the properties, then check "Local Certificate Required" and click Apply.

On the WLAN you want to enable PEAP on, go to its Security tab and click on AAA Servers, then tick the "Local EAP Authentication Enabled" box.

Create a local user and test, but make sure you uncheck the 'Validate Server Certificate' option in the client's WLAN profile.

thanks does not appear to be working - though no prompt. What do i set the Layer 2 security to none or wpa2 - or pass through eap -?

Any WPA mixture will do as long as you tick the 802.1x box.

Thanks - followed your instruction and all good - now I need to figure out how to get the users I create on the controller picked up - by clouded scansafe proxy tower (external)

Good luck with that - you can't do external accounting with local EAP as far as I know.

Yeah thanks - reading online it looks like I need ISE to be able to trap and do user (non-Active directory user) reports (from scansafe)  

We use CDA linux VM that gets AD info - for corporate Wifi AD user reporting

its reporting on guest wifi I am after
