Anyone know the settings to allow L2TP clients on a cisco authenticate to AD by way of RADIUS?

I've set the NAS-Port type to VPN, and everything else except wireless, and the policy is bypassed.  The security log is showing the policy applied is the default "connections to other access servers" (which is st to deny, but for some reason still authenticates users...weird).

I have another network policy for WiFi AP's using RADIUS as well, and connections are denied if I have the WiFi policy enabled - even if my L2TP VPN policy is 1st in the processing order.  The wifi clients do authenticate successfully when the wifi policy is enabled.

If I disable the wifi policy, it falls through to the bottom-most default as mentioned.

Any thoughts?

Your link was *partially* correct.  PLease re-read yhe OP and notice that VPN connections are working, as are wireless connections - providing I have only one policy or the other Enabled in NPS.

The clue in the link you supplied was to add the NAS-Port-Type to the Conditions tab.  I had the NAS-Port-Type specified on the Constraints tab.

Setting the NAS-Port-Type to VPN on the VPN policy and Wireless - IEEE 802.11 on the WiFi policy was my fix.

Now I have both policies enabled and both are working.

Thanks for the tip - I'm giving you some, but not all credit, as the link did not answer my question directly, but certainly gave me the lightbulb moment.

I am including my own comment as a solution because the link in the one comment did not completely resolve the issue.  from the information specific to VPN with Cisco, I discovered that I needed to add the NAS-Port-type as a CONDITION and not a CONSTRAINT on the policies.

Thanks.
