Having some questions about an 802.1x/non-Cisco ip phone setup and was hoping to find some answers/user-experience with this setup.
Main questions i'm facing:
1) When using non-Cisco ip phones (eg Nortel or Siemens) and a previous authorized client connected behind this ip phone gets disconnected. What will this action do with the authorized state of 802.1X on the switch port? WIll it stay authorized until the reauth timer expires or does it reject communication from any other device?
2) What about EAPOL-Logoff messages from the ip phone to the switch. Are these only used by Cisco phones when they experience a link-status change on data ports?
Thanks for sharing your thoughts
