Wireless connection always says validating identity
I then verified that the only way for a windows computer to connect to this is to uncheck the "verify the server's identity by validating the certificate" option while manually adding the profile. I just deployed a setup very similar to this last week, to provide Internet access to a week-long campground event.
This is the approach I used and some lessons learned: First, I used multiple SSIDs to provide the primary network on WPA2-Enterprise, and an open network for user enrollment.
After about 30 minutes of fiddling around with various settings, I was able to figure out what the problem was.
I don't know how you generated your public and private key-pair for your RADIUS server but generally speaking it will either be self-signed or signed by a certificate authority.
Does anyone know of a way to avoid having to do this?
We are perfectly willing to buy a certificate from Verisign, Thwarte, etc if it will help but have tried our Comodo wildcard SSL certificate which hasn't fixed it.
From a security standpoint the best option is setup a captive portal.
Students can use their BYOD devices to connect and reach the portal, pass their user authentication credentials to the portal and the portal can then talk to the RADIUS server.Stack Exchange network consists of 175 Q&A communities including Stack Overflow, the largest, most trusted online community for developers to learn, share their knowledge, and build their careers.
