Hi Paul,

While we do not currently have agentless RADIUS on the roadmap, we are continually hoping to improve our product, so perhaps you would like to lend an additional voice (and vote) to this feature enhancement request (https://support.okta.com/help/ideas/viewIdea.apexp?id=087F0000000BEmi).

Every day, we are moving more and more toward our ultimate goal of hosting all services through the cloud. For instance, we currently have 1/2 of the feature request above (agentless LDAP) as an internal Beta feature, and we've already begun the process of moving RADIUS toward the cloud with the RADIUS App (https://help.okta.com/en/prod/Content/Topics/Security/Okta_Radius_App.htm) model. We're ready and anxious to get there, we just need customers like you willing to help lead the charge.

If you have follow-up questions, or need any clarification on anything, feel free to submit a ticket to Okta Support. We can always find an available support engineer, 24/7/365.

Thanks for the reply.

If there's no option for a cloud Radius server, is there another way to setup our Meraki network for Wi-Fi and VPN authentication with Okta Directory? Meraki offer AD integration, but we don't use AD.  Does Okta Directory offer a proxy/gateway/translator so we can use as an AD substitute with Meraki?
