Wireless Device MAC Authentication using Microsoft NPS

Anyone successfully configured Meraki Wireless MAC Address Authentication using Microsoft’s NPS server as struggling to get it to work, getting failures to connect to radius server.

 

If any of you have a config you could share much be greatly appreciated

 

Regards

Kind of a big deal

Re: Wireless Device MAC Authentication using Microsoft NPS

Its a bit dangerous with NPS.  You have to create a username and password in AD which are both the same as the MAC address.  Make sure you don't give these users any special rights (from being a member of Domain Users).

Re: Wireless Device MAC Authentication using Microsoft NPS

NPS sucks big time. At least it doesn‘t cost a dime...apart from giving your staff headache all the time.

 

Every time a customer has tried implementing it they came to us afterwards and asked us how to do it „the right way“...
