WLANs issues...

Hafeez ur Rehman-2
Hi everyone,

I am trying to implement Idp and SP through Wireless LANs, has anyone tried it before. What are the issues that we can face using shiboleth?
e.g Authetication, Authorization issues. Wait for reply.

reg,
Hafeez

Hafeez,

Do you mean the IdP and SP are actually going to be on the wireless  
LAN, or do you mean the web browsers and users will be on the wireless  
LAN?  Users on wireless are of course able to use Shibboleth and do so  
all the time.

Although hosting a server on wireless would be a little weird, I can't  
think of a reason why it would fundamentally not work, other than  
bandwidth and latency limitations.  You'll just need to consider all  
the existing issues about firewalls and accessible ports, and the  
servers will need public addresses(although they can fluctuate if you  
use DNS naming).

Thanks,
Nate.
