MOving from LEAP to PEAP

  1. Greetings folks,

    I need to justify a move to PEAP from LEAP.

    One of the problems i had with LEAP (in this case using LEAP and Cisco's
    ACS is RADIUS ):
    I have two AD domans in a trust. Let's say domain Europe(is in Europe
    geogrpahically) and domain Asia.(is in Asia geogrpahically)

    A user from Europe travels to Asia. Now he/she could connect their laptop to
    the wired-LAN in Asia domain and logon to their Europe domain due the the
    trust that exists. This logon/authentication happens with 10-15 seconds.

    But if the user does the same, but with a wi-fi enabled laptop, and is using
    Cisco LEAP, and CISCO's ACS for authentication, it take up a very long time
    to logon. It even time outs 4 out 10 times.

    Now we are looking into PEAP. Would PEAP solve this problem ? Anybody
    encountered this?

    Also if the user's password expires at the AD, the LEAP solution does not
    prompt the user about password expired. Would PEAP solve this too ?

    Many thanks in advance

    Kind Regards

  2. Yes and yes. LEAP isn't really integrated into the Windows logon process,
    whereas PEAP is completely integrated.
