Wireless - Active Directory - Radius - Pre-Login - Scripts - Ahhh!
edugeek...I've looked over various thread over the last few weeks, what I'm looking for is a definitive answer to a question that has plagued me for sometime....
Is there any wireless vendor that supplies a out the box simple solution, if so who?
And the question.... aka - the "holy grail of wireless"
What I'm looking for is a wireless system with a central controller that can pre-login to a Active Directory server and allow a non-cached user to login to a wireless laptop/client and provide remote scripting/account desktop setting etc.
Is this possible without a Radius implementation, by using a 'normal' AD server as if your were on a wired connection?
Currently I can get only get a cached user to login to the local account, connect to the wireless, logout and then back in to provide their remote AD script/setting/network shares.
I'm not looking for any work around or hacks, just a simple solution or definitive "NO", a Radius server is the _only_ way forward. (and if anyone would care to suggest a free Radius server install (any OS - freeradius?) etc that would be a bonus)
thanks in advance.
