Autonomous AP as Local Authenticator

Unanswered Question
Sep 29th, 2010

Hi All -

I am configuring a 1252 as a local authenticator for EAP-FAST.  In order to have the AP authenticate its own clients, I have to add the AP itself as a radius host.  The only problem is that the IP address is via DHCP.  I haven't tried it yet, but suspect that won't work?  I'm trying to avoid having the IP address change, and the only thing I can think that will solve it is either statically assign the IP address, or use a DHCP reservation.


I have this problem too.

Hi Scott,

Just gave loppback0 interface a quick shot in my LAB with local radius server on an autonomous AP and it worked fine with simple PAP.

Might be worth giving it a shot in your LAB with EAP-FAST.

1- create int lo0

2- use that ip address as a radius server and as the NAS under your local radius configuration section.

let me know how it goes.
