Hello,
I'm working for a school in Germany and we offer login protected wireless for our students. Each student has his own logins for our iMac room and he can use the same logins for logging into the wireless.
For the authentication I set up a RADIUS server on the main server running OS X Server 1.5.8. The wireless network is created by a few AirPort base stations.
I'm happy that everything works fine and secure for now cos I haven't worked with radius servers before. I can see, who logged in and where, etc.

But it's only compatible to iPhones, iPads, iPod's and Mac's. I could get it running on a Windows and Linux computer but I am looking for a solution to get the system compatible to all wireless device including Nokia, HTC and other mobile phones.

How can I do this? Do I have to get rid of the certificate that needs to be accepted first? How can I setup FreeRadius to have a simple WPA2 wireless with a user login, I mean just username and password?

Thanks in advance
Fabio
