Creating guest users on airwave 8 and radius

Hi

 

I am fairly new to Aruba and its products. We have the following set up Airwave 8, IAP 105 type

 

AMP manages IAP

 

I have set up a radius server to authenticate with our AD group

 

I would like to set up a Guest WLAN and would like to create the User name and password on airwaves Client -Guest creation.

 

How can this be set up? I have lookeed at manuals and forums but I have not been able to find a solution

 

Thank you in advance for any replies

Re: Creating guest users on airwave 8 and radius

Unfortunately, Airwave Guest Creation can only create guest users on Controller-Based Aruba and Cisco WLANs, not on instant WLANs.  Airwave Guest Creation predates ClearPass Policy Manager and Instant Config and due to ClearPass is used less and less, but never with instant.   To create guest users on instant through Airwave you would use Instant Config.  Chapter 4 of the document here:  http://support.arubanetworks.com/Documentation/tabid/77/DMXModule/512/Command/Core_Download/Default.aspx?EntryId=14106 tells you how you would enable instant config through airwave.  After you setup your guest SSID, you would add users through Instant Config in Airwave like below:

Re: Creating guest users on airwave 8 and radius

Hi

 

Thank you very much for the feedback

 

Is there anyway I could create a Guest Wlan using the equipment and software we currently have or would we need to purchase something like Amigod etc

 

We would just like to set up a Guest Wlan where the user access will expire when set up

 

Please excuse my english syntax as it is not my first language

 

Thanks

Hi

 

What I meant to say is do we need to change our entire network set up at the moment or not

 

Thanks

Re: Creating guest users on airwave 8 and radius

You can create a guest WLAN on IAP using the instructions here:  http://www.arubanetworks.com/techdocs/Instant_41_WebHelp/InstantWebHelp.htm#UG_files/CaptivePortal/Captive Portal.htm%3FTocPath%3DCaptive%20Portal%20for%20Guest%20Access%7C_____0

 

You do not need Amigopod or clearpass for that.  The splash page, is very rudimentary, however.

 

If you are using airwave to also manage the configuration of your IAP cluster, you will need to use the Airwave configuration for instant to create the guest users... and configure your page.

 

Unless there is more information, you do not need to change your entire network setup.
