Radius Ruckus Cloud NPS 2008 Setup

Has any been able to setup RADIUS through Ruckus Cloud to Windows 2008 Network Policy Server?  I can't get it work with Active Directory usernames and passwords.  I'd like to setup an SSID where users authenicate to the SSID using their AD uname and password. 

I'm new to Ruckus and am wondering how to set this up.

Hi Greg,

Configuring 802.1X WLAN with radius + AD is on Cloud APs is similar to setting it up with our physical/virtual controllers.

Refer below video which explains how to setup NPS server including v/SZ controller. You can ignore v/SZ configuration but NPS server configuration is same.

Some important points to node:

  • Make sure APs are able to reach radius server as AP is authenticator here.
  • Make sure all the AP IPs are added to NPS client list.
  • Shared secret is configured correctly.
