    Hello everyone!

    Here's my setup:

    I've got a Windows Server 2008 Foundation with Active Directory installed, a Cisco Catalyst switch, a FreeRADIUS Box and a Windows XP SP3.

    The idea is to authenticate the Windows XP machine with the FreeRADIUS and then to log into the domain that is on the WinServ. How to perform machine-based authentication before user login? I managed to get certificate authentication but after the login to the machine. I also have AD working fine. I only need to integrate those two together. I read http://support.microsoft.com/kb/929847 but it doesn't seem to work - when I specify machine auth, I receive an error that i cannot connect and just that - the debug output of the FreeRADIUS is blank - the Windows machine hasn't contacted it at all? How can I configure machine based authentication?

    If you are already running a Windows Server with AD, why are you not running NPS (network policy server)? It's included as part of the Windows Server 2008 package.
