Radius plus MAC Address authentication

Hi all,


I have my controller which authenticate users using MAC address to connect to the network. But now I want my controller to authenticate users using both MAC Address and Radius authentication. so if user want to join to the network without using the authenticated mac address devices, they will be prompt to connect through radius captive portal. but if they connect using the authenticated devices, they will join to the network straight away.


is it possible to do it without 802.1x? and how should i configure it? Many thanks in advance

What do you have for a RADIUS server?

Re: Radius plus MAC Address authentication

I have a windows server 2012 configured as a NPS/RADIUS server.


By the way Tim, I got it resolved just now. the problem lies on the configuration i did on the controller. under "AAA policy", the MAC Auth server group i accidentally put it as my "nps server ip" instead of "internal". that's why it didn't work. my bad. 


so now, im able to get users authenticated with mac address or if not radius authentication.
