Dave Northey: Denys Kovalenko works for A1 Computers in Cabinteely (just south of Dublin). He’s been evaluating Network Access Protection for a while now, and wanted to share his experiences with you.
“I have been testing a great feature of Windows 2008 Server, called Network Access Protection (NAP).
I have been testing NAP since Longhorn Beta 3 and Vista RTM. It looks very promising, especially with the number of hardware manufactures who are going to support 802.1x NAP in their network devices. That fact it is controlled by policy makes it more interesting. The NAP configuration wizard makes it’s easy to deploy, but I personally like manual configuration. Netsh NAP commands makes it easy for scripting.
