RRAS Server on a Domain to use local authentication
Posted on 2004-10-28
I have a Windows 2003 Server running RAS. I have been trying to establish a dial-in connection to this server from another pc using CHAP authentication. I have been able to make a connection when the server is not part of our domain. However, I need this server to be a member of the domain. When it is on the domain, I get an error saying that the user failed to authenticate.
I know that reversibly encrypted passwords need to be enabled, and I have done that. I have reset the passwords so that this setting will catch. I have set up each user to allow dial-in connections. Encrypted passwords and dial-in settings are the same on both the local server and our PDC.
As a workaound, is there a way i can have the RAS server join the domain, but authenticate dial-up users locally??? Also, if anyone has any ideas as to how I can make this work by using the PDC to authenticate these users, that would help too. Thanks!
