Auth type not supported by External DB

Hello,

we have configured authentication with AD for PPP access.

If the user exists in the ACS database, we have selected the option to go to search the password to the Windows database.

When we try to access with one of these users, we got this error:

"Auth type not supported by External DB".

In the other hand, when the user it is not in the database, it works...

Any idea which could be the problem?

Regards,

Ruben

Strongest recommended PPP user authentication methods — EAP-TLS or MS-CHAP v2.

use above methods and check.
