 Date:  Thu, 19 Aug 2004 17:59:33 -0400
I had a quick question for anyone out there running a windows network
behind m0n0. I have a multi site ipsec VPN set up and it is working
great! The DC's are talking happily, the SQL is replicating happily,
and DFS is working like a dream. Now I have the need to let some
people in from home to run an application. Some are on dial up, some
on cable,dsl etc. All different OSes from 98 to Macintosh. I only have
10 people that need in, so I want to keep it as administratively
simple as possible (Mostly meaning that I don't want to have to put
m0n0's at everyone's homes). So I was going to have them log in with
PPTP to the m0n0's. I don't want them to use the same UN's and
passwords as they do in the office, but I don't want them to have to
re authenticate to access drives and such. My question is: If I have
the PPTP from the m0n0 authenticate against the Radius on the servers,
are those users considered authenticated users in the eyes of windows
so that I can set the permissions on files/folders with the
authenticated users group so they will not have to authenticate again?
Thanks for all of your help
