    Ruckus, Smoothwall & Radius

    Ive been told that i can use my Smoothwall UTM 1000 as a radius server for my WIFI as long as the Smoothwall is providing DHCP & DNS for the wireless network and the wireless network is on its own VLAN. All these things are the case for me. The issue im having is that the clients connect to the WIFI are given an appropriate IP address but are never challenged for credentials and can't browse.

    Heres what ive done:

    Added My smoothwall as a radius server on my ruckus controller:

    Created an SSID using 802.1x as authtication method choosing the smoothwall setting created above as the authentication server. Selecting VLAN2 as this is the vlan the smoothwall hands out DHCP & DNS for.

    Added my ruckus controller to the WPA enterprise section of the smoothwall using the same shared secret as that i used on my ruckus controller

    Any ideas what ive missed?

    I have the same setup and it works perfectly but I'm not at work at the moment to compare it with yours. It could be a vlan issue but the first place to look is the Smoothwall logs.

    There is a really good guide to setting it up somewhere on Edugeek so do a quick search for Smoothwall and BYOD. If you can't find it then let me me know as I downloaded it.

    Thanks, ill see if i can find it.

    The VLAN config works fine if i setup a standard ssid without the radius, i just have to use SSL login pages in browser which isn't fantastic for APP based data access and it annoying

    Where in the smoothwall logs would i find the radius related stuff?

    I assume smoothwall is configured to auth against your ad? Ours is set just like yours except for encryption.

    Smoothwall Can auth against AD. I checked the VLAN by setting up a standard SSID and using and SSL login page that accepted AD credentials

    If i put a garbage Ip address in for the Radius server in ruckus it acts exactly the same. So this would suggest either the radius server on smoothwall doesn't work?? Is there an easy way to test the radius function?

    Does your shared secret have any symbols in?

    If you think its the RADIUS then the Smoothwall Logs -> Logs and reports » Realtime » System and select Authentication Service, you should be able to see what's going on when a device connects

    Nothing related to the test device in the authentication logs. But id expect this as the issue is that its not asking me to authenticate.

    All that is different on mine is Encryption and we've set the accounting up in AAA.

    Stick encryption on and set your accounting server up. Just the same setup as the first just on accounting.

    We also seem to have an extra option in.

    our Zonedirector is one of the original 1000 units running on a pretty old firmware. This could be the problem. Ive ordered an 1100 controller and 6 more AP's so this might fix it?
