Windows xp won connect to wireless validating identity

I don't know how you generated your public and private key-pair for your RADIUS server but generally speaking it will either be self-signed or signed by a certificate authority.In turn the signing certificate authority's public key will be distributed to clients, either through GPOs, Active Directory Certificate Services or it was included by Microsoft in the Trusted Root Certification Authority repository.Hosts Marc Laliberte and Corey Nachreiner turn complex security concepts into easily understood and actionable insights on the latest cyber security headlines and trends.As mentioned above - you've configured your network with 802.1X authentication, either choosing 802.1X or WPA/WPA2-Enterprise.We're deploying a wireless networking using Windows Server 2008 NAC as a RADIUS server.When Windows XP or 7 clients connect they initally fail to connect.

what kind of security on the access point is being used?That certificate is often enrolled via an Private AD Certificate server - which means that you need the root certificate from AD to be able to trust the Radius server certificate.AS you PC is XP Home - it isn't joined to the domain - and thus you won't automatically get the certificate.If you do go this route, make sure you document for CYA purposes.From a security standpoint the best option is setup a captive portal.
