Re: Aironet 1200 series Access point with Elektron server config

Elektron involves a very simple installation under Mac OS X and Windows. After installation, the Elektron Settings application controls the server's features. Each access point on a network must be configured to point to the Elektron server, which needs to be installed on a machine that has a static IP address, although for LANs, this address can be a private NAT address. The Access Points pane of the settings program lets you enter a shared password which is then used on each access point to exchange data with Elektron.The Restrict Access Points to Local Network checkbox when checked keeps Elektron local; uncheck it, and remote offices can use Elektron for authentication. But remember that a routable IP address is needed in that configuration, that you're opening up Elektron to potential external attack, and that losing Internet access in a remote location means losing all subsequent access to the WLAN--users that have authenticated can remain on the network but new users can't join until access is restored.
