Hello Tim, Hello samba-people,

is there an uptodate guide for authenticating via freeradius somewhere?

I have some Ubiquiti APs plus a Cloud Key and I want to authenticate 
WLAN clients via WPA2-Enterprise instead of a (shared) PSK.

It seems like 
is missing some steps (basic setup of freeradius).

Can you write up some of your findings please?

Thanks and happy holidays,
