I plan to setup a wireless network with a cisco wireless controller attached to a cisco anchor controller using mobility tunnels. I plan to use 802.1x auth for the WLAN.
My question: Does the user authentication for the WLAN come from the local or the anchor wireless controller? Can you choose which controller the authentication requests come from? I'd perfer the authentication requests come from the anchor controller if possible.
I read the following link that states Layer 3 auth requests come from the anchor controller and Layer 2 802.1x auth requests come from the foreign controller. I still need to test this to see if its accurate. Has anyone tested this before?
I tested 802.1x authentication in my lab today using a foreign/anchor controller setup. All user authentications were originating from the foreign wireless controller. Radius accounting was being sent out the anchor but not authentication requests.
Is there a way to force authentication out the anchor controller or will it always originate from the foreign controller?
