Please we need Create a new SSID on Wism2to be authenticated via the Open Directory, we currently have authentication over the Active Directory, but since we have Open Directory as a core for single sign-on solution we need to authenticate from it.

 

Please need your support ASAP.

Hello, As far as I can

Hello,

 

As far as I can imagine this Open Directory is similar to the AD.

You have two options to use any external database such as AD:

1- Use web authentication (the WLC will manage to communicate) and you can define it as LDAP server

2- Use AAA server (dot1x authentication) and the database will be linked to the AAA (the WLC won't know about the AD, it communicates only with the AAA server)

 

If you need more details about the WLC configurations for any method, reply and will provide you with the steps.

 

Cheers,

Nour

Hey, From the wireless side

Hey,

 

From the wireless side.

If you want to use Web authenticatione:

If you want to use 802.1x with LDAP:

For using the controller as the local authenticator:  

http://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/support/docs/wireless/4400-series-wireless-lan-controllers/100590-ldap-eapfast-config.html 

 

If you want to use external 802.1x server, configure for normal RADIUS authentication then from your AAA (depending on what is it) link it to communicate with the LDAP server

 

If you need more clarification, let me know 

Cheers,

Nour
