Using Aruba Local DB for User Authentication and Bluecoat

Hi, my network is running on workgroup and not running on domain. My users authenticate via 802.1x using the Aruba Controller's local-userdb. If I need to install a bluecoat proxysg 600 in my network, how can I use the existing Aruba Controller's local-userdb on the bluecoat proxysg 600 so that the end users do not have to log in twice?

This is not possible, because the Bluecoat would have to allow or "see" authentication from the Aruba Controller.  You could have ONLY the Bluecoat device authenticate users and have the Aruba Controller just function as a passthrough...

Re: Using Aruba Local DB for User Authentication and Bluecoat

If users are going to authenticate using the bluecoat, how do I set the Aruba Controller as a passthrough?

I have multi-sites running network on workgroup mode, the SSID is tied to the 802.1x. How would it work if I only want to implement bluecoat in my HQ?

The multiple sites are running their individual controllers, 3600 and 3200. My HQ is using a 620.
