Authentication option for Wlan controller

We have wlan 4400 controllers in our lab and would like to configure management authentication through out Tacacs/Acs infrastructure.

Unfortunatly, I only saw options for locally defined users on the controller itself which will surely cause issue with out security group.

I would at least like to know if some options exists for external authentication for the management portion of the controller ?

Thanks in advance

Re: Authentication option for Wlan controller

You can configure Layer 2 or Layer security on the WLAN controller. Read the following document which has all the information on configuring Security solutions on Wireless LAN controllers.

Re: Authentication option for Wlan controller

Hi,

Thanks for the link but this is not what I'm looking for. I am looking for documentation, or maybe confirmation that the management portion of the controller is configurable through external authentication.

If I want to manage the controller through ssh/tttps, the authentication seems to only be limited to locally defined users, which is not good for us, management wise.

Again, I am not talking about the wireless side, more on the wired management side of the controller to configure it, I would like to configure external authentication . I have failed to see any pointers that would allow me to do this

Thanks for any help

Sorry Bruno, Management RADIUS or TACACS Authentication are not currently supported on the WLAN controller(s). I'd suggest requesting this feature thru your Cisco account team - I am told there are plans for it.
