Portal Authentication

Hello;

Anyone Could you please information about Portal

Authentication ( Web Authentication ) that supported

by 3COM 4800G and 4500G and also other switches.

5500 and 5500G support web authentication without

external portal server I test it.



4800G Configuration guides says the following :

system-view

radius scheme rs1

server-type extended

primary authentication 192.168.0.112

primary accounting 192.168.0.112

key authentication radius

key accounting radius

user-name-format without-domain

quit

domain dm1

authentication portal radius-scheme rs1

authorization portal radius-scheme rs1

accounting portal radius-scheme rs1

quit

domain default enable dm1



Everything up to here with the same 802.1x than ;

portal server newpt ip 192.168.0.111 key portal port 50100 url

http://192.168.0.111/portal

That's where the problem starts what is the portal server ? Is there a Web Server or switch itself or etc.. ?



Could you please information about portal authentication and portal server ??

Re: Portal Authentication

Hi,



have you found the solution? I´m not an expert, but I´d try the IP of your switch.

Re: Portal Authentication

Hello Kimera;

I think i must use 3COM IMC + UAM Module (User Access Managament)for portal authentication.



3COM 5500 Series supports web authentication via local switch IP address but new portal authentication different from old web authentication supported by 3COM 5500 series...



PS : Where is the 3COM Suport Engineer ???

Re: Portal Authentication

So, the web portal authentication is no more?

Is a separate server which holds the portal necessary?
