PIX 6.3 Easy VPN users, authentication thru Active Directory?

Hello,

Can remote VPN clients be authenticated through Windows Active Directory server on a PIX 515E v6.3.

If so what is the command to do this. If it is not possible on 6.3, is this option available with 7.0?

Kevin.

In 6.x you'd have to front-end your AD server with a Radius or TACACS server, as this is all the PIX supports.

Version 7.x introduced native authentication to AD (either NT or LDAP), see here for details:

http://www.cisco.com/univercd/cc/td/doc/product/multisec/asa_sw/v_70/config/vpngrp.htm#wp1044654

Note that the config will change a lot between v6 and v7, although if you upgrade the conversion will be taken care of for you. Basically you'll end up with a tunnel-group for your remote-access (RA) users, and you configure the authentication group under there as such:

tunnel-group type ipsec-ra

tunnel-group general-attributes

   authentication-server-group adsvr

tunnel-group ipsec-attributes

   pre-shared key

aaa-server adsvr protocol nt

aaa-server adsvr host 10.1.1.1

   nt-auth-domain-controller

See http://www.cisco.com/univercd/cc/td/doc/product/iaabu/pix/pix_sw/v_70/cmd_ref/index.htm for the full command reference.
