    Hey guys,

       I can not connect to the SSID

       I disable the terminantion,but I do not have a certificate server.

       Is that possible connect to SSID successfully without a certificate server?

     

    Here is the nps event logs

    I don't know why the server rejected the request from client

    You don't need a certificate server, you do need a server certificate that is trusted by your clients. Reason-Code 22 from your screenshots seems to mean that EAP has not been set up properly.

     

    Also, please be advised NOT to use password authentication for your wireless clients (PEAP/MSCHAPv2) as that protocol has been severely broken unless you have your certificates and clients properly set up and locked down. Learn more in this video on why not to use MSCHAPv2 and what to do (go certificates/TLS).
