Hi,

Can you confirm if the NowWAP proxy should support CHAP based radius authentication?

If I enable “Authentication via built-in RADIUS Server” then only unencrypted or PAP based authentication are accepted, CHAP all seem to get a rejection sent back to the GGSN.

My software version is v2013.08.28

Hi,

That is correct.

NowWAP does not support generating a CHAP challenge.

Our thinking is that a typical GGSN doesn't authenticate based on username, and it is typical for all subscribers to use the same account info. Therefore, there's no real security to be gained with CHAP.

If you do have a specific requirement for CHAP, please revert with more explanation, and we will reevaluate.
