Hello,

I am installing IAS on a Windows 2003 SP2 domain controller to authenticate wireless users connecting via a Ruckus wireless Zone Defender.We will be using PEAP MS-CHAP v2.  I was told to set up the system for testing purposes and after it is working, we will buy a server certificate. When I look at the documentation, it appears that the server cert is necessary to get the system working. Am I wrong and if so, how can IAS be made to work without the cert?

Thanks

You do need a cert, but you can used a self-signed cert for testing purposes.  Use SelfSSL to generate.

When/If you go live, you can buy a trusted cert from Go Daddy or Verisign.

Thanks! One other question: when I'm using SelfSSL to generate the cert, should I use the port switch (/P:port) to switch from the default (443)? If so, should I change it to 1812 or 1645 (the RADIUS ports) or can SelfSSL generate one cert for both ports?

The port switch automatically adds it to port 443 but the cert can be put on any port. SelfSSL was designed to create a cert and add it to IIS automatically but you can use it for anything needing a certificate.
