Morning,

 

Does anyone know of a way to force Windows to pass credentials in the UPN format instead of NETBIOS when using the “Automatically use Windows credentials” option for user authentication? Is there a group policy option to disable legacy NETBIOS use for authentication?

 

For example, my user account:

 

NETBIOS:        USERS\cappalli

UPN:               cappalli@brandeis.edu

 

Thanks for the help

Tim

Hi folks,

Has anyone experienced problems with mobile devices in a BYOD wireless environment not trusting Comodo InstantSSL certificates used for 802.1x authentication?

 

Thanks in advance.

Hello Group,

Wondering if Cisco's AVC is being used by anyone to block P2P as opposed to using a Procera/Palo Alto solution, and how it's working for you?


Thanks-

Anyone using the WLC 7.5 and PI 1.4 combination?  If so, has it been stable?  I have a case open with Cisco regarding client association and roaming issues and the solution is to upgrade to 7.5 code to fix the bug.  I am currently running version 7.2 on two 5508 controllers with mainly 1142, 3502 and 3602 APs.

Anything to be aware of when upgrading from 7.2 to 7.5?

Thanks,
Alan

Apologies for the cross-posting for some of you who will get this twice.

I have the need to bounce a couple of questions off of any school with a European campus that is using cloud-based networking of any sort (Meraki, Aerohive, etc.).

Off-list is better.

(coming from a discussion a few minutes ago with a large University that is considering joining eduroam) When we first started eduroam in the US, we had so few connectors that we required institutions to be Identity Providers (IdP, connect your backend authentication for your users) and Service Providers (SP, broadcast the eduroam SSID). Today, we still mention that there is a reciprocity requirement, but if you have problems broadcasting the SSID on your campus, don't let that prevent you from joining the eduroam federation as an IdP only. Be aware that you should still have a few eduroam hot spots on your campus to at least let your own users test their configuration before traveling (even one hot spot in the vicinity of the help desk is enough!)

I’m curious.  How many of you out there have avoided the UNII space in your deployments, and how many embrace it?  For those that are using the UNII bands, what have you done to minimize client compatibility issues?

I've been asked to set up two access points for a charity, and I've come to the realization I've never configured Cisco IOS AP, only the WLC models.

What I'm fishing for is deployment Idea's, with the use case of nobody technical is going to manage these things, unless they get another "volunteer".

I've been in the web-interface, and created the SSID (WPA2-PSK).

I'm going with the plan of leaving the IP DHCP, and not even trunking it, just letting serv off the VLAN it's plugged into.

I'm also going to look to disable telnet and enable SSH (if it's not already)

Any other suggestions?

We are seeing high channel utilization in one of our dorms and users are complaining about slowness.  Looking at the channel utilization, it seem that the XBox console-controllers are using quite a bit of the frequencies (all three main channels) and a decent duty cycle (upto 50%.)

In a residential student environment, is the only solution to suggest they use 802.11 5G?

I know this comes up frequently, so forgive me. We’re at a different place than we were at last inquiry…
 
Syracuse University has become an Eduroam school, and as we speak we have happy Eduroamers around the world. Woo Woo!
 
At the same time, we have yet to roll out Eduroam on our own campus and are getting ready to in accordance to the Eduroam agreement. We’re trying to figure out the best model:
 
  1. Retire our own beloved 802.1x SSID, and use Eduroam in its place. This has no favor with any of us, including our senior IT managers and so is not gonna happen. (Though I value the opinions of others, not wanting to get into a debate on this point J )
 
  1. Do a targeted rollout of Eduroam, in places where it is likely to be used by visitors- academic  buildings, etc. (So far, I can’t find evidence of anyone coming to SU and...

Hi Andy,

 

Apogee provides all the WiFi infrastructure for our Res Halls here at Tarleton State University.  We are very happy with the service and the support they provide.  Internally, we are a Cisco shop but  Apogee is using an Aruba solution.  We were impressed with both the speed and ease of the installation.

All, First wanted to thank everyone for their responses. After spending a week or so with my head down I believe I found the cause of the disconnects. What led me to the answer was this presentation at Cisco Live 2013 in Orlando: https://www.ciscolive365.com/connect/sessionDetail.ww?SESSION_ID=7808&ba... For those of you who haven't seen that, it's excellent and got me pointed in the right direction in terms of where to look. Specifically I downloaded the "WLC Config Analyzer" and have been working on issues that it has found...mostly with RRM constantly changing channels and Tx Power on some APs. I do think I'm going to disable Client Load Balancing, but it is not the primary cause of the issues. Happy to share war stories if anyone out there is interested...

Somehow this escaped me, and now I’m dealing with not getting wind of it earlier.

 

It’s no surprise that WiSMs are getting long in the tooth, but the part of the announcement that (I think) sucks is that we have a quantity of 3600 APs ready to get installed. These APs need 7.1 Code. WiSMs will not run 7.1 code.

 

We have (6) 5508s, and 24 controllers on 12 WiSMs. So we have the unfortunate choices of either running a mixed code environment (yeah, that sounds fun) where 3600s may hit controllers that can’t let them associate, shelving...

Hi

Along with installing the latest  security patch, I tried to go from Cisco WLC 7.4 to 7.6 this weekend.  However, it broke our web auth.  I had lots of error messages from the controller about improper web requests.  The release notes mention something about fragmented requests no longer working, but I didn’t think our web auth additions were complicated enough to cause anything.  Has anyone else seen this?

Thanks

John

Thanks, Anders- we have yet to deploy 3700s, but will be within a couple of weeks. Hence the desire to get ahead of this sort of thing. I’m waiting on the latest clarification, hopefully from deep inside the BU, but there is great value in knowing where others are on the same journey.

One of my editors noted there are stories online about the large percentage of upgrades to iOS 7 in a very short time; but he himself has NOT. He wondered about why others may be refusing or delaying the upgrade.

 

I was curious about what, if anything, you folks are hearing about this, either through personal conversations (or even impressions) or possibly feedback from the Help Desk staff as they deal with endusers?

 

Again, in keeping with Listserv rules, no one will be quoted/identified; at this point just trying to see if this is worth exploring. Thanks.

A few months ago there were some generally positive posts about Ubiquiti's Air Fiber links, but I'm wondering if anyone has tried out their UniFi controller-less campus wifi solution, particularly with their dual-band "UniFi Pro AP" and/or their "UniFi AP AC" access points. For background, we are a very small college, and currently have an older Cisco WLC/WPS system, mostly with their A/G APs; though we have "N" in one building. The hardware limit of our current pair of WLCs is 75 APs, and we've hit that, so are considering our next step: Expand our Cisco system with newer gear; or else go to something else for our un-covered buildings, and have two systems running side-by-side for a while as we transition to the new system. I want to add about 25 APs right now to cover our four main dorms, and I think our eventual full-coverage, high-density (for small values of "high"!) deployment might be about 150 APs total. Staying with Cisco means upgrading from our WLC 4402s to 5508, which...

I am looking for ideas to reduce the number of ssid's we advertise on our campus, faculty/staff, student, mobile, eduroam and guest. I know some folks have gone to just eduroam, if you have, what security do you have on the vlan, do users vpn back to the campus network, etc. We are looking at some form of Identity Service to push users into particular vlans, and that isn't working that great at this time. So what are you doing or going to be doing to resolve this type of issue.

Any and all comments, suggestions are welcome

We have a setup SSID that allows users to access Xpressconnect to configure for 802.1x.  Android requires a connection to the Playstore in order to download a cloudpath applet to complete the profile.   So, this setup SSID, which was restricted from external connections must be opened up so that these users can download from the Playstore.  I have had difficulties in scoping an acceptable IP address range that allows Play connectivity without opening up too much 

 

Has someone else out there troubleshooted and configured a good scope for this application you can share?

What 3rd party CA’s are people using for their PEAP server side certificate?  I have previously used verisign because they have a specialized wlan radius cert that included the correct EKU’s for server authentication, 1.3.6.1.5.5.7.3.1I cannot get the cert from verisign to work and I’m now looking at possibly changing CA’s.  My server requires the CSR be generated from the actual server itself, and it requires a .pem file and a private key file along with the private key passphrase when importing.
