I have wireless users authenticating to our Sonicpoints with their AD credentials through a RADIUS server with no problems.

I have the Sonicwall SSO agent installed and connecting the Sonicwall and our DC.
 
I have our Sonicwall sending logs to a SysLog server with no problems.

However I cannot see any authenticated users traffic appearing in the syslogs?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Is SSO enforced on the zone?
Are the users logging into the DC?
Is file & printsharing enabled and allowed in the windows firewall for at least eh SSO agent?



View example configurations and the SonicWALL webui and features on http://livedemo.sonicwall.com or http://ngfw-demo.com

Multiply the effectiveness of your APT Sandbox, stop unknown and zero-day attacks at the gateway. See a demo on http://apt-demo.com or http://atp.demo.com

Many thanks jspoor..

SSO is enforced on the wireless zone.

Users can log in with their AD credentials. The Sonicpoint is configured to pass the credentials to a RADIUS server that authenticates against a DC.

The firewall of the DC is turned off for now to get the SSO working.

When I 'check agent connectivity' it all works. When I 'check user' I only get the choice to choose 'netAPI'. Not 'From the Domain Controller' or 'Both'. (below) And get a [53] network path not found error.

Also, does this mean every client joined to the wireless zone has to have it's firewall turned off?

if users log in via radius, their ip is not in the dc security logs, so you need the agent to do netapi to the end station

use the check user test to see if the agent can query the end station

error 53 usually means win firewall is blocking netapi queries

Is there a way fo getting the user to authenticate straight to the DC (LDAP) not via a RADIUS server?

The Sonicpoint only shows how to configure WPA2-AUTO-EAP and RADIUS Server settings.

I can query and end station if it is Windows (not Mac , Linux, or Chrome) and I turn off its firewall.

you can have them login to the firewall webui,
if you in the LDAP config, set the default group to trusted users,
then create a WLAN to WAN firewall rule for service HTTP with users trusted users, when not authenticated they will get a login page.

A little confused as to what actually authenticates the user?

The LDAP + Local users authentication works in the Sonicwall.

But the sonicpoints themselves only have configuration for RADIUS not LDAP. (below)

The screenshot is to authenticate the client via 802.1x to the Access Point, not to the firewall (at this moment in time).

the SSO process or login to the webui will authenticate the user to the Firewall.

The users are presented with a login webpage  for authentication. And their names appear in the logs once they login.
