Yes, we do this with PacketFence with a vSZ running 3.6.1.

Hi Thomas,

Which version of PF are you using? I also have a few sites with Packet Fence and had to tweak it quite a bit

We're running 5.4 and just transitioned to Ruckus this year. I believe I did have to make a small change to the Ruckus "switch" code in PF that I believe is resolved in the latest version of PF. We actually would have migrated to a newer PF but wanted to make one big change (migration to Ruckus) at a time.

Thanks! Im on 8.1 and 7.5 on different schools. Using ZoneDirector (on 7.5) and 8.1 with SmartZone 3.6.0. It would be good to talk off-line. Im at dgarcia(at)mediatel.com.ar

Cheers!

We authenticate users for MAC authentication using AD servers and CloudPath (vSZ 5.0). Works like a charm.

HI,
Is it possible to share NPS and AD server's configuration guide? I implemented AD username and password authentication many times but MAC authentication is the first time. If it is possible.   Any URL.

This is basically our setup:
  1. Hotspot (WISPr) wireless LAN in vSZ (auth method MAC, no encryption), linked to hotspot portal
  2. Hotspot portal setup in vSZ to point to CloudPath
  3. AD server auth setup in CloudPath
  4. Workflow in CloudPath for register MAC address using AD auth servers
A lot of it is self-explanatory. And we don't use RADIUS for MAC auth, as it's not needed. We just use RADIUS for PEAP/TLS with certificates.
