Authentication server option

L0 Member

I have a new Palo Alto 820 and my Radius server is a Juniper running 9.1 .  At this time my Cisco and other device use a share key to Authenticate to the Juniper device.  On the Palo 820 Pan os 9.1.4 it want me to use the following Auth methods "PEAP-MSCHAPv2, PEAP with GTC, EAP-TTLS with PAP, CHAP, PAP" which I do not use.  I want to know how I can get around this issue so we can use the radius server to grant access to the users.


Is there a command line that will send the share key not encrypted.


thank you

I cant say there is a work around other than allowing those methods on the Radius server. What is the use case for this? Perhaps we can suggest something else, perhaps ldap authentication?

I actually wrote a commend earlier to this forgetting that PAN-OS even still supported standard PAP authentication. Honestly, I would never really recommend it at this point since the vast majority of devices actually support stronger authentication protocols and have for a while. 

With that being said, I actually think you should be able to get this to work by setting up the RADIUS server profile for your Juniper radius-server using PAP. I would strongly recommend following @OtakarKlier's recommendation and actually moving to a secure configuration and not using PAP RADIUS settings.
