I trying to find the configuration I need to put into the pix to work with  radius(IAS) on windows.  This is just for administrators when they are consoling in or telnetting.  No VPN involved

    I'll have to look, but I swear that Radius authentications were only allowed for VPN since the console and telnet passwords had to be on the device.  When I read it, it made sense to me since if the Radius server goes down, you don't have access to the firewall anymore.

    Will get back to you later when I confirm in a little while.

    I have the switches and router configured to use radius and I thought I could configure the pix to do the same.  Everything I have looked at pertains to vpn and I was wondering if it would be the same config if using vpn or not.

    Looks like my initial reaction is most likely wrong.

    Have a look at the "aaa" command in global mode
    You should have the options under that.  I don't run a Radius server, so I can't test to make sure.
