Re: Why in this day and age does Aruba only allow you to enter an IP address for RADIUS/LDAP

I've not really seen a reason why RADIUS is "best practice" over using LDAP. What is wrong with using LDAP for WPA2-Enterprise?

Allowing edge network infrastructure to access user credentials is never a good thing. To be clear, LDAP is still used with a RADIUS server.

So it's recommended to use an unencrypted protocol still in 2018?

The EAP method you choose dictates that. The best practice recommendation is EAP-TLS with a RADIUS server. This is industry standard.
