clearpass how to configure EAP-MD5

im trying to setup clearpass for devices that use EAP-MD5 (yes i know, not the best type). but i fail to see how configure this, i can add EAP-MD5 as authentication method. but nowhere can i configure the key or such, how should this be configured?

Re: clearpass how to configure EAP-MD5

that is clear, but what then? somewhere you have to add a password right? where do you do that?

 

i tried adding the username the device sends with the password in the local user database but i keep getting EAP-MD5 Authentication failed

Do you have the service to use the local database ?

 

What do you see in the Access Tracker output ?

Thank you

[ Edited ]

i was mixing two services and forgot to the combine everything into one. so the correct setup is: add EAP-MD5 as authentication method, add local users as authentication source, add the user as configured on the client with the password as configured on the client to the local user database, then it works.

 

thanks both of you.

 

[EDIT] seems like something that should be documented in the manual.
