Hello ,

I am interesting about 802.1x multiple supplicants feature in a way that every supplicant is authenticated separately before allowing to vlan. I see such example in Juniper http://www.juniper.net/techpubs/en_US/junos/topics/example/802-1x-pnac-single-supplicant-multiple-supplicant-configuring.html#jN10165 , but i cannot find it in Cisco. Is the catalysts capable of this ? Witch series ? And is there any scenario that shows how to authenticate by "802.1x and mac-address" pair? Thanks

The Catalyst 4500 Series Switch supports the 802.1x multiple supplicants feature.

Here is the link for the Configuring 802.1X Port-Based Authentication which will help you :


Also refer the this scenario for the Deploying 802.1x-Based Port Authentication on the Cisco ECT Solution :
