  • 1.  External RADIUS Authentication

    Posted 11-21-2019 06:34 AM
    Hello! I'm setting up a AP11 with an external captive portal with RADIUS authentication but I couldn't figure out how to configure a form to post auth data. The docs I found seems old. I need help to find out the requested parameters and url to send a post. Thanks.

    @ggg You can use the post command below:

    POST /cgi-bin/login?cmd=authenticate?user=<username>&password=<password>

    @Florent Can you clarify how the entire request should look like?

    I'm trying to trigger RADIUS Auth. With redirect to my Guest Portal I'm getting the following parameters:

    site: 'Techdata Site'
    post: ''
    ip: ''
    nas-id: 'bc:9f:e4:cc:96:44'
    cmd: 'login'
    apmac: 'bc:9f:e4:cc:96:44'
    mac: '8c:a9:82:7d:6e:44'
    url: ''
    network: 'linkyfitest'

    After the user went through the guest portal, I'm redirect his browser to an site which will automatically submit a form to trigger RADIUS auth. I was trying to make this look like you've described, but i don't know the base url. I've tried: 

    <form id="redirectForm" method="POST" action="" ></form> 

    using the post param from the initial redirect as the base url. I've also tried to use the ip uparam:

    <form id="redirectForm" method="POST" action="" ></form>

    in both cases nothing happens (my radius server is not getting any radius requests). Can you tell me what I am missing or point me to a documentation which describes this external radius integration process in more detail as i was unable to find it.


    Thanks in advance Smiley Happy
