WLC External Web Authentication Server setup

Answered Question

User Badges:

Hello All,


I can't find any information about how to setup a server for external web authentication.


I have found documentation on how to set my WLC or WLAN to point to an external server for authentication but the main Cisco site does not seem to contain anything on provisiong the server itself.


I really need to know:


  • What the server needs to be, as in IIS, apache etc.
  • How do I setup the page to exeptc the username and password.
  • How do I get the external server then to pass this on the credentials to the WLC for authentication.


If someone can point me in the right direction on this I would really be greatful.

From what I remember, you need to setup the page using the same scripts you would with the customized webauth pages. It doesn't matter what web server you use. All you need to do on the WLC is point to the login.html page.


You will need to create a pre auth acl in the wlc.
