FreeNAC Users Guide
There are three key documents available on http://FreeNAC.net/en/community, the User's, Technical Guide and Installation Guide. FreeNAC administrators will need to read all three. Each is divided into several subpages, if you wish to see it all on one page, click the "Printer-friendly version" link below.
This Users Guide presents the NAC User Interface, explaninghow to change configuration, monitor and troubleshoot..
Once NAC has been installed, configured, tuned and is running smoothly, what are the usual tasks to be done?
- Add new PCs:
This is usually done by the person who install new PCs. Before delivery to Users, the PC is connected to a NAC network port, NAC detects the system as ‘unknown’, the NAC Gui then is used to set the vlan, enable the device.
- ‘Unknowns’ appear on the network:
An email alert is received by the administrator, indicating either an intrusion, a Visitor who needs access, or a User with an unknown PC.
Read the email alert to see where it is and then either pro-actively check/configure NAC for that device, or wait for the user to call.
- Periodically you may wish to run reports, or check the status of systems or switches.
