    NPS Radius authentication via web page

    Hi all,

    I've had a look through but can't find exactly what I need so thought I would ask.

    I have used Server 2008 R2 NPS to setup RADIUS with unsigned cert and non domain clients are connecting through the WiFi fine authenticating with their logon account.

    However - the clients need to have the SSID configured for PEAP etc. As you cant expect people to wade through a doc on how to set up a SSID I designed a VB app to run from a usb drive and it installs the SSID for XP, Vista & 7 OS. Works fine but we have a few thousand students so not the best solution.

    Therefore RADIUS is working (as a solution) but is it possible to make an open SSID and put the RADIUS requirements within a webpage instead?

    Is there a reason they are not joined to the domain? Just wondering.

    Are the machines owned by your school/district?

    The computers that will be connecting are computers owned by staff/students. We have two WiFi SSID's domain and non-domain but authenticated via RADIUS.

    Am trying to find the best way for students/staff to authenticate through RADIUS with their logon details but at the moment that information has to be supplied as you join the SSID. Would prefer an open SSID with a landing page on the arrays (Xirrus) that sends you to a webpage for RADIUS authentication, then allows you to browse.

    What you want is a 'captive portal' that works in a simelar way to wireless hotspots like BT openzone, and forwards people to an authentication page if they are un-authenticated. There's lots of software around to do this, but I've personally not really played with any so I can't make any recomendations. Google 'Captive Portal' and start your research from there.
