Can PIX 506E VPN support authentication via a NT Domain Controller/Server

I am trying to understand if my PIX 506E VPN software can support authentication using a NT Domain Server. I read the 3000 series concentrators support options include this authentication, but I do not read the same options for the VPN function in the PIX software.

Is there an option I can use that would allow me access to the domain controller for VPN Clients running a mixture of W95/98/2K?

Re: Can PIX 506E VPN support authentication via a NT Domain Cont

PIX does not support NT domain authentication to the VPN client at this moment.

1 You can use Cisco ACS 3.0 , config Radius redirect the authentication to the NT database.

2 Windows 2000 server or advanced server have IAS (internet authentication service) build-in feature. It supports Radius protocol.

You can use Microsoft Radius with Active Directory user database to authenticate the VPN users for PIX.

Once again, it just use NT user database with Radius authentication, will not same as directly to use NT domain authentication.
