    Hi,

    I have a Cisco VPN 3005 Concentrator, and I want to use Windows 2000 IAS
    for RADIUS authentication/authorization. I have authentication working fine,
    but I'm having some trouble setting up authorization. The settings on the
    Cisco VPN box have a spot for a 'Common User Password' - if this is left
    blank, then it just uses the username submitted as the password.

    The problem is that when a user tries to login, the common user password
    is submitted as their username, but this is not their password, and the
    login/authorization attempt fails with a 'bad username or bad password'
    error. If I hard code a password for a test user, then it works, otherwise,
    no luck.

    My real question is: how do I get authorization working on my Windows
    2000 IAS server for my Cisco VPN 3005 Concentrator? What do I do with the
    'common user password' field on the VPN config?

    Thanks,
    Mike

    This newsgroup is for questions related to the database application
    "Microsoft Access" that is part of Microsoft Office Professional.

    I think you have posted to the wrong newsgroup.

    I don't think that the answer lies within the realm of Access databases (or
    any other database system, for that matter) You may want to ask this in a
    Windows 2000 newsgroup were I'm sure you'll get a better answer.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
