RADIUS Server - Wireless Authentication NPS on Windows Server 2016
This RADIUS server uses NPS to perform centralized authentication, authorization, and accounting for wireless, authenticating switches, remote access dial-up or virtual private network (VPN) connections. When you use NPS as a RADIUS server, you configure network access servers, such as wireless access points or VPN servers, as RADIUS clients in NPS. You also configure network policies that NPS uses to authorize connection requests, and you can configure RADIUS accounting so that NPS logs accounting information to log files on the local hard disk or in a Microsoft SQL Server database.
NPS uses an Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS) domain or the local Security Accounts Manager (SAM) user accounts database to authenticate user credentials for connection attempts.
