4500 radius port authentication

hello,



i have 2 problems.



1) when logging in through terminal. the user I'm using(any from the active directory) doesn't get admin privilleges(level 3). and when logging in through the webinterface/http. I can just use the standard username and password... how can I configure the 4500 to also use authentication throuch the http login



2)port 1 is set on auto to authorize the pc that connects to that port. everything works perfectly. when using user: example1 the access to the network is restricted and when using user: example2, the access to the network is granted. I even get nice logs wether the user is granted or denied. However, after approx. 25 seconds the computer/client starts demanding a new ip-address and says that the authentication has failed, no ip address is received. and I also don't get any logfiles about it.



any hints are welcome.



greetings Thierry

problem 2 seems to be solved. the problem was that the handshake timeout period was set to 15 seconds... which is too short. so the clients gets an authentication timeout. when setting the handshake timeout to 60 sec it works fine. now i've set the timeout to the maximum of 1024... because i don't want to see the annoying balloon "connected" every minute!



greetings Thierry
