am New to NAP and i have been asked to improve security on the wireless network RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have 41 Orinoco ap-4000 that are running on a WAP-Personal Security and I need to move them over to 80211i Station using radius to authenticate so I set up 1 Access point to be a radius Client using its ip address

    Set the Security Profile of my AP to 80211i Station this uses Authentication mode 802.1x   a cipher of AES

    I then setup NPS using the Configure 802.1x Wizard This gives me 1 connection Request policy and 1 Network Policy The NAP server has a certificate

    1 connection policy


    Type of network access server = Unspecified

    Conditions set to nas port Type Wireless –other OR wireless – IEEE802.11

    Setting all left a default values

    1 network policy


    Grant access

    Ignore user account dial-in properties ticked

    Type of network access server – Unspecified


    NAS Port Type Wireless- other OR wireless – IEEE802.11

    Windows Groups Domain\Global Security Group


    Authentications Method Microsoft Protected EAP(PEAP) with default less secure authentication methods set to default


    Standard Framed-Protocol PPP and Service-Type Framed

    All the rest set to default

    We are unable to connect and get the following error in event viewer

    Network Policy Server denied access to a user.

    Contact the Network Policy Server administrator for more information.

                   Reason:                                               The connection request did not match any configured network policy.

    As far as I can see the AP and the NPS match and the user is in the security group

    Please remember this is my first time using NPS so I did use the wizard

  • Hi Donjo,

    Have you configured certificate for users?

    Have you checked if there is related information exist?

    >>Authentications Method Microsoft Protected EAP(PEAP) with default less secure authentication methods

    Please try to configure EAP be MS-CHAP authentication and check again.

    Best Regards

  • Remove the security group condition in Network Policy and see if it works.
