r0nnieb: "...Depending what you need, there are other alternatives that the zone director supports with Dynamic PSK, Role Based Access Control, Captive Portal, Hotspot Provisioning that are easier to configure that a full blown radius solution..."
Note: I am a ruckuswireless noob. I am preparing the ZD300 for production. We anticipate (max) 2000 student "guest" users using 100 APs at any one time. We also anticipate 400 employees using their active directory credentials.
Do any of the aforementioned alternatives support multi-thousands of "guests" using the identical login credentials (or pass phrases) ? Do any of of the alternatives NOT require a separate server or non-ruckus device...that is, I would like the ZD3000 to offer the "guest" webpage (or other ZD built-in security solution) for credentialing and encryption.
r0nnieb: "802.1X will require a RADIUS server within your AAA config. If you require EAP authentication this will need to be added to your zonedirector and configuration of a radius / network policy server"
Are you saying I need a separate RADIUS server in order to use active directory ("AD") credentialing? That is, I thought I could point the ZD at our AD without the need for a RADIUS server.
