Hi Sylvain,

Do you mean to say that NPS is also installed on the same server where the AD Agent is installed? If so, this is not supported unfortunately. The reason for this is because the AD Agent is hard coded to listen on UDP/1645 for RADIUS requests, which conflicts with the ports NPS also listens on. The AD Agent ports are not currently configurable.

Re: ad agent connection erro unable to connect to server :0

I found the reason for my problem, it is because I use a windows 2008 r2 French, which is not compatible with the agent ad.

thanks for your help

best regards

Hi

I am running into the same error trying to setup AD agent Windows 2003 Server Standard Edition with SP2 (and I have disabled the Windows Firewall). The AD Agent is installed on the same machine as the domain controller.

Thanks

Somebody please can tell me

Somebody please can tell me if AD Agent works on Windows Server 2012 R2 Standard.  I have the same issue when I run Cisco AD agent adactrl. You can see the picture attachment.
