Using BYOD in a Centrally Managed System

Note: This topic applies to the Hearst Release.

It is possible to provide a “bring your own device” (BYOD) service in a centrally managed Smoothwall.

In such a configuration, you can choose to have a single node, typically the parent node, receive RADIUS requests and forward them onto the other RADIUS servers, or have a number of nodes act as the RADIUS server for the network access server (NAS) for authentication requests, authorization requests, accounting packets, or a mixture of all three.

For a detailed description of how to configure the Smoothwall to support a BYOD service, including an example of a centrally managed implementation, see Using BYOD with Smoothwall .
