802.1x authentication fails with Windows XP SP3 and Windows Server 2008 R2 RADIUS server
This document (7007679) is provided subject to the disclaimer at the end of this document.
Novell Client for Windows XP/2003
Microsoft Windows XP SP3
Microsoft Windows 2008 R2 Server
Use a different RADIUS server, such as FreeRADIUS
instead of the Microsoft Windows 2008 R2 NPS RADIUS server.
Novell's NOVEAP.DLL 802.1x MSCHAPv2 provider isn't handling one or more Crypto-Binding TLVs
being sent from the Microsoft Server 2008 R2 NPS RADIUS server. The default NPS server behavior of sending all the supported options is not configurable. Other (non-Microsoft) third-party supplicants have experienced the same problem.
Due to the substantial engineering resources required, and the fact that on October 14, 2010 the Novell Client 4.91 entered the Extended Support phase of its lifecycle, Novell does not expect to implement support for this configuration. (During Extended Support, only security or strategic fixes will be made. https://support.novell.com/lifecycle/faq.jsp#extsupport
