I'm just wondering if it is possible to do NAC-L2-802.1x without the use of the CSSC client? I've managed to get this working with the CSSC client with no problems, but have been having nothing but problems trying to get this working without. This client software is pretty expensive and if it is possible to get around using it, that'd be great. Thanks for any info.

I think that NAC-L2-802.1x cannot work without CSSC client.

You can do 802.1x without CSSC, you cannot support remediation without it however. 802.1x by itself allows you authentication, and dynamic VLAN assignment.

You can use the microsoft 802.1x supplicant it works fine for authentication no remediation though
