A NAP enforcement point is a server or hardware device that provides a level of network access to the NAP client computer. Each NAP enforcement technology uses a different type of NAP enforcement point. See the following table.

 

NAP enforcement method NAP enforcement point

IPsec

HRA and NPS

802.1X

Switch (wired) or wireless access point (wireless)

VPN

RRAS

DHCP

DHCP and NPS

When a NAP enforcement point is running Windows Server 2008 or Windows Server 2008 R2, it is referred to as a NAP enforcement server. All NAP enforcement servers must be running Windows Server 2008 or Windows Server 2008 R2. In NAP with 802.1X enforcement, the NAP enforcement point is an IEEE 802.1X-compliant switch or wireless access point. NAP enforcement servers for the IPsec and DHCP enforcement methods must also be running NPS configured either as a RADIUS proxy or as a NAP health policy server. NAP with VPN enforcement does not require that NPS is installed on the VPN server.
