"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

This is excellent, but is there anything for setup of Radius in Server 2008.
There's a bunch of articles here:

I don't think NPS is much different from IAS though. The basic procedure:
1. In AD, configure the user.
2. In NPS, configure the client (in your case the ASA). Make sure the "secret" matches.
3. In NPS, create a policy. Make sure the policy grants access if conditions are met. You will want to set the encryption method to PAP. Set the conditions you want- either a time of day, a user group within AD, or a match on the client. For testing purposes, have it match on Domain Users so that anyone with a valid password can get in. Then set more restrictive conditions if you want to.

Remember, the Client is the device (the ASA) which will be making the request to NPS. The actual user machine is called the Supplicant in radius.
