    All of the logs can be found under C:\Program Files x86)\WatchGuard\

    Authpoint Gateway\logs\ will show you info about the connection to the cloud.

    Authpoint RADIUS\logs\ contains more detailed logs about RADIUS authentication.

    Authpoint LDAP Sync\logs\ contains more detailed logs about the LDAP sync and LDAP authentication.

    There are no higher log levels available.

    wow that was quick response, the logs there have some info but I cant see anything useful.

    Here are the applicable lines

    2020-03-12 12:41:45 INFO [pool-2-thread-3] c.w.a.r.s.AuthenticationService - Authentication request received - HttpStatus: 400 - Request-Id:bd2c849a-7a78-4d0c-8571-49083df658a1
    2020-03-12 12:41:45 INFO [pool-2-thread-3] c.w.a.r.flow.AuthenticationFlowImpl - Authentication denied - Protocol: PAP - Username: ahoward - ResourceId: 6962. - Request-Id:bd2c849a-7a78-4d0c-8571-49083df658a1

    I know it was denied I need to know why

    Ive reset her password on the domain controller and resynced and it still refuses to authenticate her... I tested the password by logging in to the PC as her on the domain, so I know the username password is right ...

    We initially had 25 authpoint licenses, we removed a few test accounts to make room for her account. Is it possible thats causing an issue ?

    Ah ok. I'd suggest using the Tech Search to make sure your search covers all resources: docs, kbase articles and known issues.


    "The HyperText Transfer Protocol (HTTP) 400 Bad Request response status code indicates that the server cannot or will not process the request due to something that is perceived to be a client error"

    Make sure that network/phone allows push service.
    iOS: TCP ports 5223, 2195-2196 and 443
    Android: TCP ports 5228-5230 and 443

    Check token details for push id / push status within the app
