Select AP MAC for radius requests?

  • Question
  • Updated 3 years ago
I'm using a service for radius authentication (IronWiFi), and like most of these providers, they charge on a per-AP basis.  Out of 7 APs, we only use 1 (lobby area) for guest access.  Currently, they have detected 3 APs based on the requesting MAC address.

Looking at the MACs they see, they are:

- The base MAC of the AP (LAN1)
- The BSSID of the 2.4GHz radio
- The BSSID of the 5GHz radio

How do I make the AP/ZoneDirector send a consistent MAC as the NAS-IP???

This is an R600 AP and a ZD1200 running build 1515.

I looked for relevant settings in the AAA server config, the WLAN, and the AP, not sure where else to look...

Hi Bway,

Great question,

SZ line of product supports it via Proxy, where the SZ is the Authenticator. In the case of the ZD, I use recommended version 9.13 and the ZD is the Authenticator by default there.

I would open a ticket with support on this to get a fast answer.
