Registering the WLC as a RADIUS client on the FortiConnect

  1. On FortiConnect, go to Devices > RADIUS clients and add your WLC as a RADIUS client.

    Enter a Name for the WLC and enter its Device IP Address.

    Enter a Secret that will be shared between FortiConnect and WLC.

    Set Type to Meru SD 8.0 & Later.

  2. Go to the Automatic Setup tab and enter the information for the FortiConnect to perform WLC configuration.

    Enter the Device IP Address of the WLC.

    Enter an Admin user name and password.

    Enter a Captive Portal Name that will be used to create/name the Captive Portal Profile at WLC.

    This creates 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 that allows the wireless device to be redirected to FortiConnect captive portal before the user or device is authenticated.

  3. Click Setup Controller.

    FortiConnect establishes an SSH connection to the WLC. Wait for the configuration to finish.

  4. When the configuration is done, a message similar to this appears.
