Hi Mearl,

I'm not seeing a setting for that, can you send a screen shot of it?

There is a setting in Windows wireless setup to "Automatically use my Windows logon name and password". If it is check-marked it will use the Windows login.

Subject: Windows Workstation Authentication

I have 802.11 authentication set up using an eDirectory backend and it all works except for one thing. When a user logs in to a Windows computer using a windows account that does not exist in eDirectory the authorization fails. Since the locally logged on user does not exist in eDirectory, authorization fails before the user is prompted when initially trying to connect to the wireless. Instead the workstation sends the user credentials that were used to log in locally to the radius server.

Does anyone know if there is a way to configure the Windows wireless connection or the radius backend to force a prompt for authorization?

Thanks for any assistance.
