SYMPTOMS

Consider the following scenario:
  • Users make Secure Socket Tunneling Protocol (SSTP) connections to a VPN server that is running Windows Server 2008.
  • Network Policy Server (NPS) logging is enabled on the VPN server.
In the NPS accounting log, you find that the IP address information (attributes 31 and 66) of the SSTP client is missing. Therefore, the users cannot audit the IP addresses of the SSTP client from the NPS accounting log.

CAUSE

This problem occurs because the VPN server that is running Windows Server 2008 does not pass the IP address information of the SSTP client to the NPS server.

RESOLUTION

To resolve the issue, install the following hotfix. After you install the hotfix, you find that the NPS accounting log contains the IP address information of the SSTP client.
