Cisco wireless authentication

is it even possible to setup some sort of authentication using a cisco access point + controller in such a way that the user will be presented with a login page where they will enter the login credentials which will be passed to an asp/php like page that will determine if the user is valid or not and return some sort of code to the cisco controller to deny/allow user access?.  I am just wondering if it's even possible to do it in order to explore it further.

thanks in advance for taking time to answer my question.


Hi,I hope this is what you


I hope this is what you are looking for.

Not sure about your requirement to authenticate based on asp/php but there are three ways you can authenticate the user according to above link. 1) Local (username and password) created on WLC 2) External radius server 3)LDAP.

Hope that helps.
