LDAP Group - Authentication device instead of user


i've a group in the AD, that group contains devices not user - is it possible to control a policy with that group? At the moment there is an alias group with clients, i want to replace the alias group with the ldap group so i can control the 'access to that policy' trough the AD. On the Clients the Watchguard Authentication Client is installed, if i add users to the ldap group it works, but i want that it depends on the client.

    Hi @SameAsBefore
    The firebox itself only pulls the groups a user is a member of -- not the PC itself. If the PC has a static IP. you can make a custom rule to be from a user or group -and- a subnet or set of IPs.

    There isn't any way to use an AD 'computer' account via the firewall for authentication purposes at this time.
