I'm the Network Admin for a small school district and we're in the process of deploying a wireless network. I'm wondering what kind of sollutions people have come up with for eDirectory/802.1x authentication. We're deploying all Cisco hardware (1200 APs) and also are purchasing the Wireless Lan Sollution Engine. We are also considering purchasing their ACS as well if that will help with the eDirectory/LDAP/802.1x thing.

Ideally we'd like to have a user log in using the Novell client and be none the wiser that they just authenticated to the wireless network and then to eDirectory. Is this possible?

Thanks for any info.
