This looks a little dated but it is a how to on the Local EAP server in a WLC.


Document makes it look complicated when you start looking at Certificates and stuff, but its relatively straight forward to enable if you don't need trusted certificates.

Besides Wesley link I would suggest you look into the following link:

There are a few main steps to do to configure the local EAP with LEAP (supposing that WLAN is already created):

-  create local eap profile and choose it to support LEAP.

- choose local eap auth priority to point to your preferred location for credentials. The two options you have are local (if credentials stored locally in "local net users" (WLC GUI-> Security -> AAA -> Local Net Users), or LDAP if you have LDAP external DB configured).

- configure the WLAN to use local EAP for authentication. (WLAN GUI -> WLANs -> Your WLAN -> Security tab -> AAA Servers).

If you are using LDAP you need to configure this independently. You can find LDAP/Local EAP configuration example in this link:


However, the link shows EAP-FAST configuraiton, you can just ignore all EAP-FAST configuraiton and configure LEAP instead.

Good luck.
