Can I make the 802.1x authentication Via LDAP server?
11-22-2011 11:36 PM
Now there is a customer said he hope to do the LDAP server authentication.
I want to know , if I can only do this by Captive portal authentication in WEB page?
Can I do the LDAP authentication by the way of 802.1X ( Or say : Can I make the 802.1X authentication via LDAP server?)
Just like the 802.1x over windows IAS radius.
Thank you very much.

Most 802.1X implementations use a radius server. However, it is also possible for LDAP.
In order to authenticate against LDAP, the following must be done:
- controller must be configured for eap termination.
- the eap type for the client must be configured for EAP-GTC.
- supplicant for macbook is built-in.
- unfortunately, windows machine is shipped with PEAP or EAP-TLS. Thus, in order to get EAP-GTC, you have to either load a shim or load a different supplicant. Aruba has a shim that you can download from our support site.
