So after having implemented our BYOD network as described in this post… I began thinking about how it would be great if we could remove the Microsoft RADIUS server from the equation and have Smoothwall perform the RADIUS AAA. This would enable Smoothwall to know the user that was connected simply by the account they authenticated with against RADIUS; as opposed to having to log into the Smoothwall again through a web page using the same credentials you just passed to RADIUS to get on the WiFi in the first place!
Then back in May 2013 Smoothwall released Main Update 60 which in essence turned the Smoothwall device into a RADIUS server. Perfect! Just what I had wanted.
So I began to play around with the Smoothwall RADIUS offering and our Netgear Managed WiFi set up.
