Radius compatibility mode settings in WLC

Unanswered Question
Jul 21st, 2009

our users are using some 3rd party radius server for MAC address auth. I found there is a setting called Radius compatibility mode in the WLC configuration. But there is no document talking about what this setting does for.

So should I set it to use "Other" or just leave it as "Cisco ACS"?

This determines what password is used for mac authentication. ACS expects to see the username and password to both be the mac address for mac authentication. Free Radius uses a shared secret for a password. And other Radius servers don't require any password for mac auths sent to the server.
