SYMPTOMS

After you configure your computer that runs Microsoft Internet Authentification Service (IAS) 1.0 with the RADIUS/Proxy Server service as a client for a Windows 2000 based Remote Authentication Dial-In User Service (RADIUS) server, authentication requests may be denied and the RADIUS/Proxy Server service on the Windows NT 4.0 IAS server may stop responding (hang).

CAUSE

This behavior occurs because the Proxy Server service is not decrypting and encrypting MS-CHAP-MPPE keys correctly.

MORE INFORMATION

The user requesting authentication should be in the same domain as the Windows 2000 based RADIUS Server for the RADIUS/Proxy Server service to be configured correctly.
