1. Configuration Tools
The Moonshot SSP ships with two tools for configuring the SSP. One is a GUI, and one a CLI. These tools allow you to:
- Set various configuration options about the way the SSP operates
- Configure your connection to a Moonshot RP Proxy
- Add manual account mappings.
1.1. The GUI - msetupgui.exe
The default location for the SSP setup GUI is
To set the options as documented in Section 2, simply click to turn them on and off. Note that all settings require a reboot to take effect.
1.2. The CLI - msetup.exe
The SP setup CLI is located at
To set the options as documented in Section 2, run the msetup tool in a command prompt with the appropriate flags. Note that all settings require a reboot to take effect.
2. Main configuration options
You can use either tool to set any of the options below.
|SSP Option||Explanation of Option|
|Debug||Turns on Debug logging. See the Debugging the Moonshot SSP on Windows topic for further information.|
|Disable SPNEGO||GSS-EAP will not be advertised by the SPNEGO/Negotiate security package. This may avoid any potential incompatibilities that might arise from the SSP being negotiable at two layers (Negotiate and NegoEx).|
|Disable NegoEx||GSS-EAP will not be advertised by the NegoEx security package (as negotiated by SPNEGO)|
|Use S4U on Domain Controller||Normally, if running on a domain controller, the directory is interrogated directly. If this flag is set, however, then S4U2Self (protocol transition) will be used if that fails. Used for debugging|
|Use Kerberos RPC ID||Pretends to be Kerberos rather than GSS-EAP (e.g., required for Microsoft Exchange)|
|Support Interactive Login||Allows federated sign-in to the Windows desktop|
|Use Domain Login Credentials||Pass through the credentials of the currently logged in user (desktop SSO)|
3. Configure the connection to your Moonshot RP Proxy
Your Moonshot SSP needs to connect to a local Moonshot RP Proxy in order to authenticate remote users. To do so, you can either use the GUI or the CLI, whichever you prefer. Adding a connection to a Moonshot RP Proxy consists of two steps: configuring the basic details for the Moonshot RP Proxy, then configuring whether to use a RADIUS or a RadSec connection.
3.1. Basic Connection Details
3.1.1. Using the GUI
In the msetupgui.exe window, you will find an "Add Server" button. Click on this and a dialogue will pop up asking you to enter some information. Fill it in as follows:
- Address - the IP address of your AAA proxy
- Port/Service - the port that your RADIUS server is running on (often 1812 for RADIUS and 2083 for RadSec)
- Secret - the shared secret for your SSP as configured in the AAA proxy
3.1.2. Using the CLI
In a command prompt, issue the following command:
For a server located at 220.127.116.11, listening on port 1812 with a secret of "sharedsecret" you would run a command as follows:
3.2. Configuring RADIUS or RadSec
Your Moonshot libraries will need connect to a Moonshot RP Proxy. This can be a RADIUS or a RadSec connection.
If you are unsure which to use, then RadSec is recommended as it is more flexible and more secure. It is slightly more complex to set up, however.
18.104.22.168. Using the GUI
To configure a RadSec connection, make sure the "TCP" option is selected in the drop-down menu at the top left of the msetupgui.exe window.

To configure a RADIUS connection, simply make sure the "UDP" option is selected in the drop-down menu at the top left of the msetupgui.exe window.

4. Add account mappings
Before doing any of the following, make sure you've read the User Account Mapping Options.
When a user authenticates via Moonshot, their remote identity (their NAI) must be mapped to an existing account on the Windows machine. If the machine is a standalone machine, this should be a local account; if the machine is a member of an AD domain, then it should be a domain account.
4.1. Mapping to a local account
4.1.1. Using the GUI
- In the msetupgui.exe window, click on the "Add User Mapping" button. A dialogue box will appear:
- Add the following information:
- User - the full NAI of the user (e.g. firstname.lastname@example.org)
- Account - the name of the local account you wish to map to (e.g. johns).
4.1.2. Using the CLI
- In a command prompt, issue the following command:
To map a user with an incoming NAI of "email@example.com" to a local account of "johns" you would run a command as follows
4.2. Mapping to an AD domain account
To map to an AD account, you need to edit that account's attribute called "AltSecurityIdentities". Add a value of "EAP:[NAI]" to map an incoming user to that particular account (e.g., a value of "EAP:firstname.lastname@example.org" on a domain account of "DOMAIN\johns").
