    Referencing the article below. Does setting the value of AuthMode=1
    require the user logon to the computer within 60 seconds of the machine
    account being authenticated or does this explain that the user
    authentication must complete within 60 seconds (from time login request
    starts to when user authentication is complete)?

    Thanks,
    Jake

    AuthMode Registry Entry
    The setting of the AuthMode registry entry controls the computer and
    user authentication behavior of Windows XP and Windows Server 2003.

    Registry path
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\EAPOL\Parameters\General\Global\AuthMode

    Version
    Windows XP and Windows Server 2003

    AuthMode has the following values:

    · 0 - Computer authentication mode. If computer authentication is
    successful, no user authentication is attempted. If the user logon is
    successful before computer authentication, user authentication is
    performed. This is the default setting for Windows XP (prior to Service
    Pack 1).

    · 1 - Computer authentication with re-authentication. If computer
    authentication is successful, a subsequent user logon results in a
    re-authentication with user credentials. The user logon has to complete
    in 60 seconds or the existing network connectivity is terminated. The
    user credentials are used for subsequent authentication or
    re-authentication. Computer authentication is not attempted again until
    the user logs off the computer. This is the default setting for Windows
    XP Service Pack 1 (SP1) and Windows Server 2003.

    · 2 - Computer authentication only. When a user logs on, it has no
    effect on the connection. Only computer authentication is performed.
    The exception to this behavior is when a user successfully logs on, and
    then roams between wireless APs. In that case, user authentication is
    performed. For changes to this setting to take effect, restart the
    Wireless Zero Configuration service for Windows XP or Windows Server
    2003.
