We have a Cisco 3825 router with an IPSec Remote Access VPN configured to authenticate against a radius server. We're retiring the old server and moving to a new one (Windows Server 2012). We changed the radius-server host line in our config accordingly and the router is able to communicate with the new radius server. The server is denying access however, because the Cisco is configured to use PAP authentication which I've configured our radius to not accept because it is insecure. I'd like to change this to PEAP-MSCHAPv2 on the router but can't manage to figure out if this is possible. I find a lot of information about this related to the ASA, but not the IOS platform. Any advice on how to configure this?

  • IOS doesn't appear to support anything else. PAP is only insecure if the transport is insecure. Since it's crossing an IPSec tunnel, it shouldn't be an issue. – Ricky Oct 7 '15 at 23:28
