RADIUS Authentication;  ASA 5510/5505/PIX 501 "Populate Domain Field of Cisco Login Dialogue Box"

wwakefield used Ask the Experts™
I have succesfully set up RADIUS authentication for Cisco VPN users to authenticate against the Windows Server 2003 AD with IAS.  Configured on Cisco ASA 5510 but will also firld to 5505 and Cisco PIX 501.

Is there a way to automatically populate the DOMAIN field on the Cisco login prompt which consist of a Cisco dialogue box with fields for USERNAME, PASSWORD, and DOMAIN.

What Cisco login prompt? Do you mean on the VPN Client? Is it the Cisco VPN Client, the AnyConnect client, or something else?


Cisco vPN Client version 5x.

After clicking connect, cisco prompt (dialogue box) that appears to authenticate against Active Directory.   Fields are:


-Not a big deal, it is gonna be a hassle with folks remembering the various domains.
Hmmm, in my test environment I am running Cisco VPN Client When I connect to an ASA 5520 I get a USERNAME AND PASSWORD prompt but no DOMAIN.

You are using IPSec with Group Authentication, right?
Not possible.

The most you can do (that i know) is set up the policy on IAS to require the user to be a domain user or something that you could use to determine it's a domain account.

Whatever you type in will be detected as a username even if you put a \ on the username.


Thanks for the confirmation!
