Why do I get a Windows Security Alert when I try to connect to AuroraUniversity?



“The connection attempt could not be completed”


The Credentials provided by the server could not be validated. We recommend that you terminate the connection and contact your administrator with the information provided in the details. You may still connect but doing so exposes you to security risk by a possible rogue server.


The security alert lets you know that the server you are connecting to is not necessarily a trusted source. You can connect to the AuroraUniversity network by confirming that you are connecting to a UofL server and trusting the VeriSign security certificate. To do this:


Open the Details for the security message


Confirm that the Radius Server is nps1.aurora.edu or nps2.aurora.edu


If it matches the details displayed on your computer, then you can safely click Connect and use the AuroraUniversity wireless network.


If the Radius Server is not nps1.aurora.edu or nps2.aurora.edu, click Terminate and contact SSD at itshelp@aurora.edu or 630-844-5790
