Hello! I'm attempting to have my remote users login to our VPN using RADIUS .I've followed http://fixingit.wordpress.com/2009/09/08/using-windows-server-2008-as-a-radius-server-for-a-cisco-asa/ as well as a few other sites, and am not having the same results as they have. When I go to test the connection b/w the ASA and Server 2008,  The message I get is "Authentication Server not responding; No error." I've triple checked my address (can ping b/w both), radius port #s, secret key, etc. Any other ideas?

On the ASA command line (maybe in ASDM as well someplace) there's a command to test AAA.  Been a while since I've done it but it's something like "test aaa authentication <server> user <name> password <password>".  That might help to see if there's communication between the ASA and the AAA server.  If the test fails, and you know the credentials are correct, then there is something that's getting in the way of the communication.  You can also do "debug aaa authentication" on the ASA to see what is happening from its perspective.  Those are the things I would start with.

Incidentally, can any other devices authenticate using AAA on that server, or is it only the ASA that's trying?

Thats the command I was using :( The ASA is the only thing that is trying to authenticate with AAA.

Figured it out! The server has multiple nics,and the AAA requests werent being looked for properly. Under NPS and the server settings, if you change the ports from say1645 to "10.10.10.10:1645, 1812"it will properly forward the request.. All that work for one line, haha.
