- Go to Administrative Tools -> Internet Authentication Service.
- From here, the first thing you need to do is to register your IAS server with Active Directory. To do so, right click on the Internet Authentication Service (Local) container and select Register Server in Active Directory.
- Click OK to complete the registration process.
- Now, right click on the RADIUS Clients container and select New RADIUS Clients. If you happen to know the IP address or DNS name of one of your client machines, go ahead and enter it along with a friendly name. Otherwise, leave it for now, as we'll be filling it in later when we set up the client connections anyway.
- Click Next.
- You will now be prompted for a shared secret. A shared secret is an encryption key used by the RADIUS Server and the client. Make sure that the Client Vendor option is set to RADIUS Standard, enter a shared secret, and click Finish.
