802.11 Client Device Interoperability


MacOS version in use?

I am interested in hearing from Aruba customers who have MacOS users on their networks. If you know or can figure it out, approximately what percentage of users on your network are running the following?

OSX 10.4
OSX 10.5
OSX 10.6

Thanks in advance.

Re: MacOS version in use?

We have about 600 MacBooks, most running 10.6 that connect to our Aruba 105's. That's about 40% of our client base, and they aren't all connected at the same time (we are a school district with laptop carts). I have the Mac clients connecting to a separate SSID with a PSK and MAC authentication because I wasn't confident in the OS X 802.1x supplicant on our "main" 802.1x SSID. I have had Mac clients connect via 802.1x, but I wanted an easier way to image/deploy the machines, so I opted for a crazy long PSK that I could put in a system image, and MAC auth instead. They have no problems connecting.
