I am pleased to announce the immediate availability of the Network Access Protection (NAP) Client for Windows XP SP2 – Beta 3 (February 12th, 2007) to all Longhorn Server Beta customers. You may download it now from MSConnect.
The previous release of the NAP Client for XP SP2 was on July 12th, 2006. Since that time, some exciting things have been added:
· NAP 802.1x support for both WIRED and WIRELESS connections
· The Extensible Authentication Protocol (EAP) Host Platform – “EAPHost”
The NAP Client for XP SP2 final release will be through the Microsoft.com Download Center later this year. It is planned to coincide with the final release of Longhorn Server.
Please tell us about your experiences with NAP Client for XP SP2 – Beta 3. We need your feedback!
