A customer wants mobile users at a university to authenticate to join in the network by making the clearpass authenticate from the active directory using dot1x.
the mobile phones aren't joined the domain or anything, just the username and password that they will use to login are stored in the active directory, is this possible?
how different will it be if we are authenticating machines that are joined in the domain?
I am getting a bit confused.
thanks in advance
The short answer is yes for mobile devices. They connect rather easily.
For the domain devices you will probably want to use group policy to push the wireless profiles to domain computers.
If a PC is not joined in a domain but has the credentials stored on the active directory, and another PC is joined the domain,
what is the difference in authenticating both, what changes in configuration will i have to do?
You mean just to enable the wired autoconfig service and enable dot1x authentication on the network connection, right?
