> Do you know, what the relevant product from Cisco for these functions is?
When you mean function, do you mean the RADIUS server part? If so, it is the
Cisco ACS 2.6 (Trial download is available). As far as "What AP's can
authenticate to it?" I believe that all the 340/350 series with firmware
11.x and greater can.
> What do you mean? Which wireless portals?
Many ISP's put AP's around and when you associate and get an IP, they
intercept your browser traffic and put up a logon window. Then you have to
register. Much like the I-Port stuff I have found in the Marriott hotels I
have stayed in. It is basically used to say "I'll let you up to this point,
but unless you register/login, you don't get any further."
> Where can I read more about all this?
Lots of searching. It has taken me many weeks of "Google"ing to get relevant
documents. Download the trial Cisco ACS 2.6, as the documentation with it is
good. Also read the following:
- RFC 2284, 2716, 2869, 2865
Get what you can off the IEEE 802.11 site
Hope this helps a bit.
