Authentication via RADIUS


we are running an Cisco WiSM in an Catalyst 6509 and we are trying to authenticate our clients against an radius Server.

As Interfaces we have configured´:

Management with IP:

Ap-Manager with IP:

Virtual IP:

Guest Lan with IP:

The Management Network is a closed Network with no Internet connection.

The Radius Server we want to use is at an other Location and has an official IP.

We have configured the WLAN to use the Guest Lan as outgoing Interface.

The Security Tab is configured as WPA + 802.1X with Radius Servers set in the AAA Servers TAB

The Controller is configured as AAA Client at the radius Server.

If we try to auth with our Client the Client keeps in "Verifing Mode"

The Controller Log shows "Radius Server x.x.x.x:1812 failed to respond to request (ID 91) for client xxx"

Any Ideas?

Has the Radius Server to be on the same Subnet as the Management interface?

Best regards
