Enable 802.1X on snom 710 with MD5


I am trying to implement 802.1x on snom 710 phone using Windows NPS server running on server 2012 R2 

Since Snom 710 only support EAP-MD5 , i had to tweak the registry to allow support for MD5. I enabled 802.1x and entered username & password, but i am still getting Failed notification. 

Do you have any documentation on setting 802.1x EAP-MD5 ? What Constraints should i use in NPS server ? Only allow MD5-Challenge , or should i also add EAP(PEAP) to the list?




You're getting failed notifications where? Is the Switch receiving the EAPOL Start from the D710? Is the Windows NPS Server receiving the EAP-Responses for the Access-Request and Access-Challenge from the Switch? Which firmware is on the D710?


Snom Support


I am not sure where i am failing and i am not sure if i configure the NPS correctly. I am also not sure if i need to enter the username with or without the domain name information (should i use domain/username or just username ?)

This is why i am asking for a guide or any other documentation that you have which explain the 802.1x configuration using windows NPS on server 2012 R2 and EAP-MD5 authentication.

BTW - my snom version is -

I am also attaching logs i have from the snom. 

If you need additional information, i will be happy to provide, just let me know from where should i get it. I have also logs from the Juniper switch:
