    Hi ! Is it that all I have to configure in the Win2k8 Server to get authentication with RADIUS in, for example Cisco ASA ?
    thanks in advance

    1. Yeah the windows radius setup for an ASA is the same. The configuration on the Cisco ASA is only different than on a Cisco IOS router.
      So if you follow the article radius should work in the end.

  3. My users can have access to the Network when they connect with the VPN. But they can’t reach the server’s files.
