Radius Proxy is an optional configuration of the RADIUS Server that enables 802.1X authentication against an Active Directory server. Access points configured with WPA/WPA2 Enterprise authentication to the NG Firewall RADIUS Server can enforce login via Active Directory when joining the wireless network.


The NG Firewall appliance must be able to resolve the fully qualified hostname of your Active Directory Primary Domain Controller. You can test name resolution using the DNS Test of the Troubleshooting utility. If the test fails, you must create a Static DNS Entry in the NG Firewall DNS Server.

Active Directory Server

There are three steps required to configure and verify your configuration with the RADIUS Proxy.

1. Input the Active Directory Server details and click Save to apply and activate the settings.

Important: The AD Workgroup should be in upper case.
