SEPM 12.1 with Cisco WLC 5.0

Created: 08 Apr 2013 | 2 comments


We are currently Implementing a NAC solution with LAN Enforcers and SEPM 12.1. We are having issues with integrating a Cisco 2106 wireless lan controller with this architecture. Is there a minimum firmware version that the Cisco wireless lan controller must have to support integration/communication with a LAN Enforcer? The cisco WLC is currently running firmware version 5.0.   The Radius server we are using is an ACS 4.2.

Thank you

I'm not seeing anything to indicate there is that type of requirement per the requirements in the getting started guide:

We are unable to finalize the authentication processs.

We tried several options when defining the type of device of the Cisco WLC: 

* Aironet Series

* Airespace Wireless Constroller

* Cisco Catalyst Switch

We also tried 2 options for the switch policy


We check that HIC is passed and user auth is passed and we send a certain VLAN back to the WLC.

If HIC is failed and user auth is passed we send a different VLAN back to the WLC.


We check that HIC is passed and user auth is passed and we open the port.

If HIC is failed and user auth is passed we close the port.

When we try to authenticate, the host does not connect to the wireless network, although the NAC client says that 802.1x authentication was successfull through a pop up during the connection attempt.

Are there any configuration example documents when it comes to implementing SEPM with wireless controllers? I was unable to find anything. 

Thank you
