10.5: Enable full RADIUS support on OS X Server
Authored by: mcnaugha on Jun 02, '09 05:43:39AM

If you set the RADIUS certificate correctly (it defaults to test certificates which cannot be used) and then use the "Add..." button to add in third-party APs then you can start the service. The service will not start while the certificates are at the test ones because a 'dh' file is missing. The GUI shows "Custom Configuration..." when its set to the test certificates.

When using the "Add..." button you need to specify an AP type. These are defined and you must use the relevant one of the following: cisco, computone, livingston, max40xx, multitech, netserver, pathras, patton, portslave, tc, usrhiper, other. I was testing with Linksys AP's and they worked with the 'cisco' type.

I didn't test this without changing the authent bit to opendirectory. So I can't confirm that it works without changing this. So I don't know if TvE is referring to this when using third-party APs. If TvE is just using AirPorts then the point of this hint has been missed.

Labeling the AP type made a huge difference. I'm using a D-Link DAP-2553 and put in "dlink" which worked fine.

Also, if you're having issues with Windows boxes, check out this thread, specifically the post by vette4:
