3com WX4400 open access wireless
Could anyone provide some direction into setting up a WX for web portal authentication?
Currently I am operating one encrypted SSID on a network with a single VLAN (NOT the default VLAN as I don't use that). This works fine. We configure wireless clients with the WPA key and away they go.
What I would like to do is now configure another SSID (clear/unencrypted SSID) that students, teachers etc can associate with and authenticate via the web portal in order to use it.
I am using development kit to try this out, but so far I have a cloned WX4400 with production config running, and I have setup another VLAN on the WX to service the clear SSID, with a radio profile etc. I have setup a switch with my VLANS and I have configured the temporary DHCP server in MSS and successfully obtained an expected IP address from this port on the WX on the VLAN I have configured. I can also ping the host interface address for the vlan.
Do I have this concept correct - as the access point is now running 2 SSIDS and I want to keep traffic seperate, the access point needs to tag traffic from itself to the switch depending what SSID it is coming from? and do I need to configure the port on my edge switches that my AP's are connecting to to expect only tagged or untagged traffic? Presumably they need to be set to only allow "tagged" traffic now, as the AP's would effectively be doing the tagging depending on source SSID?
No matter what I try I cannot even associate on the newly created clear SSID. It is "visible" but not associating, let alone even getting an IP address or redirecting me to the portal log on.
Anyone help me get this old dinosoar going!? I could do it via 3WXM or CLI if need be.
