Linux RADIUS and Active Directory

By aj.boonstra ·
I am trying to setup a Fedora Linux server to authenticate wireless users. I would like to use my AD server to get user information and use the RADIUS just for authentication on the wireless part of our network. Any suggestions?

I think you might be making this a little harder than it needs to be. Why not use LDAP/Kerberos?

Keep in mind, LDAP would be more scalable and cause you less of a hassle in the long run. I know you are running AD, but it is going to be rough going to support RADIUS/wifi/AD/etc.

LEAP might also be a solution, but that is you are running Cisco stuff...

Thanks. That does seem like a lot less trouble and just as secure as my previous thoughts.

I would like to use WPA and authenticate with my Active Directory through RADIUS on a Linux server. Hope that clarifies a bit. I'm open to other suggestions.

Use your radius server that you have on your AD server. it will save you time and electricity.

I want this solution to be totally seperate from anything the AD is doing.
