Set-VpnAuthType

Updated: August 15, 2012

Applies To: Windows Server 2012

Set-VpnAuthType

Sets the authentication type to be used for connecting to a VPN.

Syntax

Parameter Set: Set0
Set-VpnAuthType [-Type] <String> [[-RadiusServer] <String> ] [[-SharedSecret] <String> ] [-AsJob] [-CimSession <CimSession[]> ] [-ComputerName <String> ] [-EntrypointName <String> ] [-MsgAuthenticator <String> ] [-PassThru] [-RadiusPort <UInt16> ] [-RadiusScore <Byte> ] [-RadiusTimeout <UInt32> ] [-ThrottleLimit <Int32> ] [-Confirm] [-WhatIf] [ <CommonParameters>]




Detailed Description

The Set-VpnAuthType cmdlet is only used to toggle from one authentication type to another. This cmdlet cannot be used to explicitly add any additional RADIUS servers if RADIUS authentication is being used.
-- The parameters for RADIUS authentication properties, such as the MsgAuthenticator, RadiusPort, RadiusScore, RadiusServer, RadiusTimeout and SharedSecret parameters, are applicable only when the ExternalRadius authentication is configured.

Parameters

-AsJob

Runs the cmdlet as a background job. Use this parameter to run commands that take a long time to complete. The cmdlet immediately returns an object that represents the job and then displays the command prompt. You can continue to work in the session while the job completes. To manage the job, use the *-Job cmdlets. To get the job results, use the Receive-Job cmdlet. For more information about Windows PowerShell® background jobs, see about_Jobs.

-EntrypointName<String>

Identifies a site in a multi-site deployment for which the authentication type needs to be configured.
If this parameter is not specified in a multi-site deployment, then this parameter value on which the cmdlet is run is used. The server could also be represented by using the ComputerName parameter.
If this parameter and the ComputerName parameter are specified and the ComputerName does not belong to the site represented by this parameter, then this parameter takes precedence and the authentication type is configured for it.

Note: The secret is specified in clear text.
This parameter can be configured only if the Type parameter is specified to be ExternalRadius.
When specifying a RADIUS server for authentication, it is mandatory to also specify the shared secret. The default values can be used for the other parameters.

-ThrottleLimit<Int32>

Specifies the maximum number of concurrent operations that can be established to run the cmdlet. If this parameter is omitted or a value of 0 is entered, then Windows PowerShell® calculates an optimum throttle limit for the cmdlet based on the number of CIM cmdlets that are running on the computer. The throttle limit applies only to the current cmdlet, not to the session or to the computer.

<CommonParameters>

This cmdlet supports the common parameters: -Verbose, -Debug, -ErrorAction, -ErrorVariable, -OutBuffer, and -OutVariable. For more information, see    about_CommonParameters.

Inputs

The input type is the type of the objects that you can pipe to the cmdlet.

  • None

Outputs

The output type is the type of the objects that the cmdlet emits.

  • Microsoft.Management.Infrastructure.CimInstance#VpnAuth

    The Microsoft.Management.Infrastructure.CimInstance object is a wrapper class that displays Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) objects. The path after the pound sign (#) provides the namespace and class name for the underlying WMI object.
    The VpnAuth object consists of the following properties:
    -- Authentication type: Windows or ExternalRadius.
    -- Configured RADIUS servers: If external RADIUS authentication was set, then the configured RADIUS servers are displayed.


Examples

EXAMPLE 1

This example sets the VPN authentication type to be ExternalRadius. A RADIUS server is specified along with the shared secret required to communicate with that RADIUS server.


PS C:\> Set-VpnAuthType -Type "ExternalRadius" -RadiusServer "10.1.1.1" -SharedSecret "s3cr3t" -PassThru
Type             : ExternalRadius 
RadiusServerList : {10.1.1.1} 

EXAMPLE 2

This example sets the VPN authentication type to be Windows, which causes authentication to happen on the Remote Access server computer.


PS C:\> Set-VpnAuthType -Type "Windows" -PassThru
Type             : Windows 
RadiusServerList :
