How to configure Network Policy Server in Windows Server 2012 R2

In this post, we’ll learn the steps to configure Network Policy Server (NPS). In the previous post, we learned the steps to install the Network Policy Server in Windows Server 2012 R2. NPS allows you to create Network Access Protection (NA) for client health. Through NAP, we can restrict the network access or provide limited network access to the unhealthy clients from using organization’s network.

Let’s take a scenario, we have an OU naming Sales in Active Directory Users and Computers. We have to apply the Network Access Policy on the client computers in the Sales OU. NAP policy will verify if Firewall is enable on the client computers. If Firewall is not enable then it would block or restrict the network access. However, we can also define the policy to verify Antivirus and Anti spyware applications.
