8021x radius coa

Hi, I'm new with fortiap and fortigate. Does the fortigate/fortiap support a use case with 8021x and radius coa using an external radius server? Documentation of radius coa is refering to web portal use case. I appreciate any documentation or example.

Good question, I know coa is a feature supported in fortios. Who has used it fot wireless clients is  been my knowledge. You should test it out and build a report  based on your finding.







PCNSE NSE StrongSwan

Yes, FortiGate WiFi Controller supports RADIUS CoA on WPA2-Enterprise SSID.

Please refer to:

Find "CoA" at the end of page 40.


Yes, it supports radius authentication to MS-svr NPS, using Fortigate wifi as controller on 5.6.4 i have done it before. , setting up Dynamic vlan too. U will only see one SSID being broadcast, but  the vlan assignment will be done by the NPS server.
