    Hello Muhammad,

     

    To answer your questions below I have not heard of a reason why NAP will not work in a Windows 2000 AD domain.  I have not seen this documented anywhere and have not tested it, but cant think of a reason why not. 

     

    Second if use 802.1x you have to use EAP Authentication and in doing so you will need at least a Certificate on NPS server if you use PEAP MSChap.  PEAP/TLS or EAP/TLS will require certificates on the server and clients.

     

    Check Out http://www.microsoft.com/nap it will have a step by step guide for 802.1x and NAP.

     

    Hope this Helps,.
