Network Policy Overview Properties

Applies To: Windows Server 2008

Network Policy Overview properties

On the Overview tab of a network policy or while running the New Network Policy wizard, you can configure the following:

  • Policy name. Type a friendly name for the network policy.

  • Policy State. Designate whether the policy is enabled or disabled.

  • Access Permission. Designate whether the policy grants or denies access. Also specify whether NPS should ignore the dial-in properties of user accounts in Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS) when using the policy to perform authorization for the connection attempt.

noteNote
If you have many user accounts in AD DS, it is recommended that you configure the dial-in properties of user accounts to control network access through network policy; however, you can accomplish the same result for individual policies by configuring them to ignore the dial-in properties of user accounts.

  • The network connection method used for the connection request:

    • Unspecified. If selected, NPS evaluates the network policy for all connection requests that originate from any type of network access server and for any connection method. This includes connections from Terminal Services Gateways, servers running Routing and Remote Access service that provide VPN and dial-up access, DHCP servers, 802.1X wireless access points, 802.1X authenticating switches, Health Registration Authority (HRA) servers, and Host Credential Authorization Protocol (HCAP) servers.

    • Remote Access Server (VPN-Dial-up). If specified, NPS evaluates the network policy for connection requests that originate from a computer running the Routing and Remote Access service configured as a dial-up or VPN server. If another dial-up or VPN server is used, the server must support the RADIUS protocol and the authentication protocols provided by NPS for dial-up and VPN connections.

    • Ethernet. If specified, NPS evaluates the network policy for all connection requests that originate from IEEE 802.1X authenticating switches.

    • Terminal Services Gateway. If specified, NPS evaluates the network policy for connection requests that originate from servers that are running Terminal Services Gateway (TS Gateway).

    • Wireless Access Point. If specified, NPS evaluates the network policy for connection requests that originate from IEEE 802.1X wireless access points that support the RADIUS protocol and Extensible Authentication Protocol (EAP).

    • Health Registration Authority. If specified, NPS evaluates the network policy for connection requests that originate from servers that are running Health Registration Authority (HRA).

    • HCAP server. If specified, NPS evaluates the network policy for connection requests that originate from servers that are running Host Credential Authorization Protocol (HCAP).

    • DHCP Server. If specified, NPS evaluates the network policy for connection requests that originate from servers that are running Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP).
