Hey people. I'm sitting in front of an ASA 5510 firewall and got a problem with authenticating users.

I shut dowen every secret possibility, common password etc and nothing worked. All passwords and possible secrets are Password123

request for must contain messsage authentication is not marked and the password/secrets fields are empty at the AAA server as well.

They aren't empty right now but I had tried it several times.

I want users on a cisco firewall to authenticate against AD. IAS do get replies and messages about users but that log doesn't say anything with much information.

Users got the possibility to authenticate, but aren't just accepted, I tried several accounts.

Do anyone know the reason for this?

And do anyone know if I Cisco allow people to use their copyright router/switch pictures public somewhere or do I got to mail them for it?

Doing a projekt and we would need to get a mail with rights for it.:P

I did as well remove the commands for MD5 and framed-id etc in IAS.

I see as well that ASA auto encrypts passwords for users and thought it might been that, but got no clue how to shut it off.:/

I'm using Radius standard protocol as well.
