Hi, We're using NPS (2012 R2) for 802.1X authentication of corporate users, but within HiveManager NG the username field of authenticated clients only shows "host/hostname" (where the 'hostname' part is the actual hostname of the clients PC). Does anyone know how to configure NPS to return the Active Directory username to HiveManager instead? Thanks, Tony

I believe this is because the client is authenticating with it's computeraccount instead of it's useraccount. In the settings of the WiFi client you can change this, I asume you using Windows, you can find it under 802.1x settings of the Wireless network (SSID). You can use a GPO for domain joined devices to push this setting so users Always use the user account instead of the computeraccount to authenticate to the Wireless network.
