Point to Point link with external radius

Hello.

I have a point to point link using 2 AP 1242.I'm using Wpa-psk with Aes encryption as security method.

The question is if it possible to secure a PtP link using an Eap method with an external radius server (Acs 5.3).

Has anyone tried this?

Thanks.

Christos.

Hey Chris,

I suppose you are using autonomous APs. right?

In this case and AFAIK, you use one AP as root and one as none-root.

The none-root will try to authenticate to the root when it connects. This means that the authenticator will be the root.So radius should be reachable to root bridge.

This way you can make it possible to use radius server to authenticate none-root AP to the root AP.

for creating EAP SSID on root AP you can use this config example (it shows 4.x ACS side. not 5.x. but you care more about AP config).

change security config for your SSID from WPA-PSK to be EAP as in the example.

I hope this helps.

Finally i managed to secure the link using eap-fast and the external radius.
