  • Hi,

    As Windows Server system, we should configure a server running NPS to act as a RADIUS server, a RADIUS proxy, or both.

    NPS provides three different types of policies: connection request policies, network policies, health policies. As a simplest RADIUS deployment, it may be not necessary to manually add policies, as some policies are added by default(such as connection request policies). It all depends on your deployment and requirement whether configure NAP Policies or not.

    If you want to configures RADIUS proxy, manually edit the connection request policy to forward authentication message is necessary. Besides, for NAP VPN or 802.1x, PEAP authentication in connection request policy is necessary to be configured.

    Some examples about RADIUS configuration, just for your reference:
