Client VPN and Azure AD

Hi All 

 

I have a question that I hope someone can help me with since I cant find the answer. 

 

I have a MX84 that has Client VPN enabled. For VPN authentication we use Meraki Cloud which is fine. But now I got a request asking to be able to use same login credential as we use for Azure AD ( office 365).

 

Is there any way to set this up without having to use RADIUS server?  I know there is possibility to use SAML set up to acces the dashboard and assign roles. Would it be possible to use something like that for Client VPN authentication?

Kind of a big deal

Re: Client VPN and Azure AD

I want to tell you the answer is "no".

 

However if you enjoy a lot of grief it should be possible using a RADIUS proxy solution.  I think Jump Cloud is quite well known in this space:

But if it was me I would tell the person making the request "no".  But that's me.  I don't like lots of complexity and grief.

So to confirm, your only source of AD is Azure AD? You do not have an on-premises AD that syncs to Azure?

Yes that is 100% correct.

Hi Philip,

 

Oow wel, it's what I had expected I just could not find a clear answer if it was Yes or No. 

 

Normally I do like a good challenge but for the few managers that need this I don't se a point in doing it.
