Anybody have any experience with Watchguard 8.3 and Active Directory integration?  I have never used this before, and the bosses are wanting to find out more about it.

Thanks!

From what I can tell, it's an updated auth method that allows for MUVPN users to authenticate.  I am fuzzy on how it is used for HTTP control and/or logging, and I have had problems finding answers on their site.  I know how to do the step by step setup of the auth server in the Policy Manager, but I'm not sure after that - does it take users and groups in OU and allow/deny access?

it will take a specific group and allow access.....but you have to manually tell it to take that group and work with it

I don't see anywhere on Watchguard's site to obtain 8.5.  I'm using an X-Core x1000.

they will nly let you go to 8.5 in certain cases and you have to request it from them. I work very closely with Watchguard and I know that 9.0 will also be available very soon. i guess they jumped in the deep end a little when developing fireware. In my opinion they have tried to go a bit like Cisco but will never be as good. You now comand line configure the 8.3 and above and you even enable and get the # prompt just like cisco :0)
