WLAN for Management interface

Hi,

We recently had a partner configure our wireless deployment based on two 4402 controllers located at the headquarters.

This partner configured WLAN bound to Management interface (not dynamic interfaces) and said that this is needed.

I serious doubt that. Can someone shed some light on this? Is this something that is needed for any reason?

We are using PEAP as authentication schema and in order to tighten the security we had configured a list of our authentication servers (two IAS servers) under PEAP properties->Connect to these servers.

This is Microsoft recommended way to allow further security with PEAP.

When this is configured authentication fails (IAS authenticated to domain), however when this checkbox is removes it works.

Maybe this WLAN to management inteeface binding is for this?

Thoughts?

Thanks!

David

Re: WLAN for Management interface

Generally a WLAN is assigned a specific interface to tie the WLAN to a specifc IP subnet and VLAN to which the interface is configured. IP addresses to the WLAN clients are assgined from the subnet to which the interface belongs to.
