Aruba and Forti-Authenticator integration

Dear All,

Our customer has Aruba 7030 wi-fi controller and Forti-Authenticator.

They want to authorize wireless client endpoint on Forti-Authenticator (Captive Portal). 

Is it possible?




Re: Aruba and Forti-Authenticator integration

I din't think so, a better solutin would be to authN the users on CPPM and use the fortiauthenticator integration to share user details/roles with FA as FSSO.

Best Regards

Re: Aruba and Forti-Authenticator integration

Yes basically its possible , because Forti-Authenticator is radius server .

What type of the authentication you are using (customer requirement , 2 factor , Social or user name and password )

as per my knowledge flow like this ,

1. on Wifi controller add Forti-authenticator as the radius server fortiauthenticator create wifi controller as the radius client aruba capative portal config redirect authentication to external server

Hi Danny Jump:

May i ask a question.

If just to use captive portal authetication for my environment not use FSSO, also need use FortiAuthenticator?

Below is my architecture:

User Login-->Aruba AP or Aruba SW-->CPPM(RADIUS Accounting)-->FortiGate

Have a nice day.
