NAP notification (napstat) on Windows 8 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have NAP running on several Wireless Access Points and switches. I have only tested it on Windows 8 sofar. I noticed that when a NAP Client is nog compliant or non-compliant users don't get a (pup-up) notification in the taskbar. You can only check it in the Action/Security Center. I have read that apparently this behavior has changed in Windows 7/8. I just want to confirm that is correct.

    Does a NAP client not show any notifications (in the taskbar) anymore when it is non-compliant? Is there any way to enable it?

  • Hi,

    based on my knowledge, if you type "netsh nap client show state", You can check if the clietn is limited or not. 

    And when you type "napstat" in the command prompt, the warning message will show up at the right-bottom corner of the desk.

  • Hi,

    Thanks for your post.

    Please sure the Security Center was turn on Group Policy.

    Quote from the following thread:

    This policy setting specifies whether Security Center is turned on or off for computers that are joined to an Active Directory domain. When Security Center is turned on, it monitors essential security settings and notifies the user when the computer might be at risk. The Security Center Control Panel category view also contains a status section, where the user can get recommendations to help increase the computer's security.  When Security Center is not enabled on the domain, neither the notifications nor the Security Center status section are displayed.

  • Everything is turned on per manual. Inlcuding the Security Center.

    It is not that I can't see anything in the Security Center. It's just you don't get any notifications that pops up at the taskbar. Most users aren't aware of the Security Center.

  • I currently also have this "problem". Is there a way to automatically show the napstat GUI in case the client is in an unhealthy state?
