RADIUS on an AP referencing Open Directory

We're trying to implement RADIUS on our campus network and when I try running the RADIUS test from the hive console I keep getting "The connection attempt to the server timed out."

We have an Open Directory server setup on the same subnet as our APs and have the RADIUS server setup on one of our APs. The tests have been from the AP which has the RADIUS server setup on it so I'm thinking there shouldn't be an issue getting to the RADIUS server from the same AP that it's on.

I've got my AAA Client Settings set to include the subnet that the rest of our APs are on. I've got my AAA User Directory Settings setup to include an Open Directory entry with a BindDN account and pw included.

And the Aerohive AAA Server Settings are set to reference the Open Directory entry and the rest of the RADIUS settings are default.

At this point I'm wondering if there just a configuration I'm missing or maybe a simple syntax issue somewhere. Any suggestions are links to an example where someone has setup a RADIUS server on an Aerohive referencing an Open Directory for authentication verification would be awesome.

Thanks!

Hi Mark,

The OD integration no longer works post 10.6. This is due to Apple dropping Samba support.

In the interim, please see this thread on how you can get a radius server setup with your open directory.

Knowledge of Terminal and Sudo is assumed:
