Looking for some input here on how to proceed or verify my thoughts if i can be successful
The story goes:
I have a customer who runs an "office hotel" where multiple small IT company rent their offices.
Up until now things have been running smoothly. but now the tenant's are starting to grow & therefor needing their own Subnet for server, printer's, site-2-site vpn to azure/aws or whatever.
The subnets/vlan can be created easily and i can assign the client pc to whatever vlan from the switches. no problem here.
but. the wireless part. if i have to deploy vlan on ssid i will go over the limit of 4 ssid. Going past here will severly limit the performance. To overcome that issue we can create a Radius based setup and then have only 1 ssid, where you as a u ser input your username & password, and then you will be assigned your designated Vland.
So i am hoping someone have done this before, as i am uncertain if The Check Point firewall will "work" in this.
I have a Checkpoint 1570 model, which is running DHCP server too.
I also have a linux box running, where i intend to run the Radius part.
Does anybody have any experience on deploying this, and will check point work with this setup?
i have done it before on a Ubiquiti router which worked flawlessly, but i dont want to just expect it to work in check-point hence my question here, in the hopes that anybody is running something like this.
hardware: CheckPoint 1570, Ubuntu 22.04 server with Radius server(created with local users NO Active Directory)
Ubiquiti switch & Ubiquiti access-point.<< this part i got figured out, and have it working other places.
my thoughs on the connection flow here would be.> Endpoint connecting to SSID> Authenticant with username & password>Radius server recieving authentication credentials> Accept or drop> If accept> relay DHCP request to Check Point 1570> Deliver Ip address to endpoint from the Check Point
Hoping for someone here having some input to share
Have a nice day everyone
