Microsoft Wireless Client with EAP - Question

Unanswered Question
Aug 27th, 2008


In our customer's Wireless LAN. There 40 x 1130AG LWAPP AP's and 4404 WLC with ACS 4.1 for the Authentication of the Wireless Clients who is trying to access the LAN.

Customer is not having Cisco Wireless Clients. They are willing to use 802.1x authentication facility available in the Win laptop. Windows support EAP-TLS or EAP-MD5. But customer is not having any Active Directory / DHCP / DNS Setup.

My undersatnding of the EAP-TLS is there need to be a CA Server (Certificate Authority). If i configure the ACS 4.1 server to be a CA Server; will it work? is Active Directory / DHCP / DNS Servers are mandatory for EAP-TLS.

Or, is there any Windows Client Solution without Certificate validation process?

Please, can any one help me calrifying this!
