IAS, Wireless, and MS-CHAP V2

    Hey guys this is my first post. I have a question about IAS, PEAP
    MS-CHAP V2, and wireless. I am using MS-CHAP V2 to authenticate PDAs
    on our wireless network. Because we are using MS-CHAP V2, we are using
    AD credentials to authenticate the clients. Everywhere I have read it
    states that we have to install the server certificate onto the device.
    I have found a loop hole though. Both on the wireless PDA and laptops,
    we can choose not to validate the server certificate. I can still
    authenticate to the IAS server (wireless) but I have not installed the
    server cert onto the device (because I have unchecked the validate
    server checkbox both in zero config and the wireless application).
    This is my question, if we don't validate the server and if we don't
    have the server cert, won't the transmission of the user account and
    password be in clear text? Is there a way on the IAS server that we
    have to force the clients to have the server cert or they wont be
    authenticated?

    Thanks,
    Peter Kim
