authenticate as guest when computer or user information is unavailable

Discussion in 'Wireless Networking' started by Graham Turner, Mar 11, 2005.

  1. would anyone be able to give any more detail on the wireless connection
    setting;

    "authenticate as guest when computer or user information is unavailable" ?

    under what scenarios would neither be available -

    does it relate to the configuration of a machine not being in a domain , in
    which i assume no machine creds are available, and so the authentication has
    to wait for user logon to initiate ??

    If you use IAS/radius, (in domain or workgroup environment) you could enable
    the guest account and set a Remote access policy, which give limited network
    access for that connection.
    Bye!

  3. stefano, thanks for post response

    i agreed with your scenario in which guest access would be useful

    what i am trying to get to the bottom of is why my XP / SP2 client is
    apparently generating requests for Guest access to a radius server, given
    that this setting is not enabled

    thanks

    mmmH! the "authenticate as guest when computer or user information is
    unavailable" is not checked.. right?
    What access point have you got? Cisco Aironet?
