Networking: Local Radius Server on ASG

Cause small offices (planning offices, Laywers, etc.) are not using a windows server AD but like to use WLAN (cause there´s no cabeling needed) a local radius server would be helpful (i.e. available on Linksys Routers with TinyPEAP or via DD-WRT) to authentificate the users with a central security. So a local user database is still on the ASG. Why not implement an optional radius server instead of pointing to a local one on a windows server?

        I don't need it to be Radius per say I just want AD authentication for WIFI, you can do it VPN it shouldn't be a huge leap to implement

        Would even be useful in a AD environment, to centralise control of AP's and logging, while using the users credentials in AD for authentication.

        This is exactly what I need!
        You can already use a variety of authentication services for the user portal, why not use that list of users! WiFi shouldn't depend on another server to function properly.

        Hi, yeah this would be a great idea. Right now those customers buy Fortgate´s because they have a local radius.

        The integration of FreeRadius would be a great feature for small to medium offices that do not use an AD.

        If you can't add a local Radius, "fake it" using the local user DB... this would be a great feature to have for small installs, etc. that do not have additional servers available to provide RADIUS authentication.

        Would be very helpful. It would allow to use 802.1X authentication in the networks
