Using BYOD with Smoothwall

Note: This topic applies to the Leeds Release.

The Smoothwall makes use of RADIUS accounting to allow users to connect their own wireless devices to the network, known as “bring your own device? (BYOD), and authenticate unobtrusively. This has the added advantage of not having to install additional software on the users’ device.

The Smoothwall links your organization's directory service to its RADIUS server. As a network administrator, you can configure your wireless network infrastructure to authenticate users using the RADIUS server so that users can use their directory service accounts as wireless client login details.
