Without SSO also we can use active directory authentication for PPTP connection.

if you wanted install SSO agent just go through this  

Download the SSO agent software

   1. Open a web browser and go to http://www.watchguard.com/.
   2. Log in with your LiveSecurity Service user name and password.
   3. Click the Software Downloads link.
   4. Select your device type and model number.
   5. Download the WatchGuard Authentication Gateway software and save the file to a convenient location.

Before you install

The SSO agent service must run as a user account, not an administrator account. We recommend that you create a new user account for this purpose. For the SSO agent service to operate correctly, configure the user account with these properties:

    * Add the account to the Domain Admin group.
    * Make the Domain Admin group the primary group.
    * Allow the account to log on as a service.
    * Set the password to never expire.

Install the SSO agent service

   1. Double-click WG-Authentication-Gateway.exe to start the Authentication Gateway Setup Wizard.
      On some operating systems, you might need to type a local administrator password to run the installer.
   2. To install the software, use the instructions on each page and complete the wizard.

For the domain user name, you must type the user name in the form: domain\username. Do not include the .com or .net part of the domain name.

For example, if your domain is mywatchguard.com and you use the domain account ssoagent, type mywatchguard\ssoagent.
You can also use the UPN form of the user name: username@mywatchguard.com. If you use the UPN form of the user name then you must include the .com or .net part of the domain name.

   3. Click Finish to close the wizard.

After the wizard completes, the WatchGuard Authentication Gateway service starts automatically. Each time the computer starts, the service starts automatically.
