Odd BlueSocket authentication issue with a MacBook
The majority of our laptops are Windows-based so transparent NTLM authentication is the obvious authentication mechanism to use. This has never really worked on OS X so the two Apple laptops we have simply use browser authentication. Our sixth form users that have Macs also use the browser to authenticate.
The odd authentication issue is with our MacBook (we also have an iBook which works fine). The user authenticates, does a bit of whatever and then the laptop will magically authenticate itself using its computer account via transparent NTLM auth. The computer account isn't an account that is authorised for wifi access so the laptop gets quarantined until you re-authenticate. This is slightly annoying!
This has been happening for ages but I figured I should probably fix it at some point... I'm now lost for ideas. The system is a BlueSecure BSC-400 fully patched up.
