You can integrate Novell® eDirectory™ 8.8.x or later with FreeRADIUS 1.0.2 onwards to allow wireless authentication for eDirectory users.
If you are new to FreeRADIUS, refer to the FreeRADIUS site for more information.
By integrating eDirectory with FreeRADIUS, you can do the following:
Use universal password for RADIUS authentication.
Universal password provides single login and authentication for eDirectory users. Therefore, the users need not have a separate password for RADIUS and eDirectory authentication.
Enforce eDirectory account policies for users.
The existing eDirectory policies on the user accounts can still be applied even after integrating with RADIUS. Also, you can make use of the intruder lockout facility of eDirectory by logging the failed logins into eDirectory.
