Configuring PEAP on IAS with autonomous aps and getting the following error on the IAS serevr so I know that the ap is talking to the IAS.

Not sure what I am missing, is there some attribute I need to look at??

An Access-Request message was received from RADIUS client xxx.xxx.x.xxx with a message authenticator attribute that is not valid.

Also Windiws IAS should use port 1812? but I get no messages with port 1812 just port 1645?

Any help appreciated.

This message usually means that your shared secret is not the same on your AP and the IAS server.

Here's how to configure the ports in IAS:

Hi Pete,

One thing I can think of is the key length between your IAS and AP. Try a shorter or longer key (I would bet that you need a longer one).

IAS listens on both 1812 and 1645, although 1812 is the expected default. You can configure the RADIUS port on your AP, when configuring the RADIUS server IP address.

Thanks so much, the only thing I didnt check was the shared secret, its been a while since I put PEAP on an autonomous AP so thought I was missing something, yep should have checked.

Many thanks
