Integration with CISCO Router for PEAP requests

Hi Phil,

Thanks a lot for the quick response.

I need this for PEAP with EAP protocol inside the tunnel, like EAP-MSCHAPv2.

Again, The device MUST reject the connection as EAP is not completed,
but the ROUTER needs that Access-Accept,
in order to be able to redirect user to portal.

Can this be done?

Thanks in advance.

You're not understanding what Arran said.

This is an FAQ:

In short: many (most?) devices will drop the connection if auth fails,
including a missing or invalid final response in the inner
challenge-response auth.

So, forcing an accept might work for the router. But the client will
probably disconnect.

See the FAQ entry above.
