Right - I'm back at my Ruckus school - how do I go about getting my clients authorised so they show up better in the Dashboard?
Simon you will need to enable Web Portal authentication on the SSID or change the authentication type to 802.1X
You'd think by now you'd worked out my tech speak levelSimon you will need to enable Web Portal authentication on the SSID or change the authentication type to 802.1X
Off to see if I can find anything like that!
To add AD as an Authentication Server go to "Configure - AAA" Servers and click create new.
Web portal authentication: - The user will be redirected to a web portal page for authorization once they have authenticated to the AP. There is a 30minute grace period. After this grace period if the client disconnects from the AP and reconnects they will be asked for authorization again.
RADIUS is much easier to integrate into AD but can be tricky if you do not have a RADIUS server to work with at hand.
I recommend getting IAS on one of your windows server along with windows certificate authority.
Integration into Ruckus is as simple as changing the authentication method under "Configure - WLANs" to 802.1X and changing the authentication server to the RADIUS server. (again to add the RADIUS server into the ZoneDirector - "Configure - AAA Servers"
Yes - that's it...
But... you also need a RADIUS server on your network to authenticate the clients. This can be, for example, IAS on Windows Server 2003, NPS on Windows Server 2008 or FreeRadius.
Personally I'm running NPS - I have it configured so that only machines that are members of "Domain Computers" security group are allowed to authenticate and access the network. (I chose this because I didn't want pupils or staff connecting their own machines and authenticating with their AD credentials - they'd be able to do this if I'd chosen user authentication).
In a nutshell you need to:
1. Install IAS/NPS on a windows server (it's a Windows feature - so add/remove control panel).
2. Get a certificate issued to that server. (I used my in-house certificate authority).
3. Setup the NPS box as an AAA server on the ZoneDirector
4. Set NPS to use the ZoneDirector as a RADIUS client.
5. Set an access policy.
6. Set a Group Policy Object to automatically configure the wireless settings for mobile clients.
I'm happy to offer advice, as I've only just recently done this and it's still (relatively) fresh in my mind!
Well - thats my brain frazzled
But going back a bit
I had entered the class names for all the APs in Descriptive name but it doesn't show up in the dashboard at allHi Guys, you can have the logs dashboard etc display a descriptive name
of the AP instead of it's MAC address by giving the AP a descriptive name under Configure -> Access Points.
if I could get the APs to show my name that would at least be a little help
Cold you take a screenshot of the dashboard and of one of the AP's when in edit mode.
