Configuring 802.1X wireless authentication

This section explains how to configure Active Directory and Mac to authenticate Active Directory users by using a Microsoft RADIUS server with the 802.1X PEAP (MSCHAPv2) protocol over a wireless network from a Mac computer.

On Mac OS X, 802.1X wireless authentication does not rely on Centrify Access Manager or Apple's Active Directory plugin but is configured primarily through group policies that apply to the Windows server and the Mac computers.
