Watchguard and AD Integration

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

don't forget fireware 8.5  is out not and resolves some of the clunky issues with 8.3

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)
