Registering the WLC as a RADIUS client on the FortiConnect
- On FortiConnect, go to Devices > RADIUS clients and add your WLC as a RADIUS client.
- Go to the Automatic Setup tab and fill in the information needed for the FortiConnect to perform WLC configuration.
- Click Setup Controller and FortiConnect will establish a SSH connection to the WLC.
- When done you should see a message similar to this one.
Enter a Name for the WLC and enter its Device IP. Enter a Secret that will be shared between FortiConnect and WLC and set Type to Meru SD 8.0 & Later.
Enter the Device IP address of the WLC, an Admin user name and Admin password, and a Captive Portal Name that will be used to create/name the Captive Portal Profile at WLC.
This will create a RADIUS profile, a captive portal profile, and a Quality of Service (QoS) rule to allow access to the guest portal on the WLC.
The QoS rule is similar to a firewall rule, to allow the wireless device to be redirected to FortiConnect Captive Portal before the user or device is authenticated.
It might take a minute or two for the actual configuration to finish.
