we would to authenticate (with dot1x/mab) more than one mac address on a port. When a user connect his workstation the switch must put the workstation in a vlan and when the user start a vmware in bridge mode the swtich must be put the vmware in a vlan trunk. Can anyone help me, are Cisco Switches able to do this?

Thanks, Dominik

Hi Dominik

You can't run dot1x on a trunk, generally speaking. There's only one scenario where you can run dot1x in a special trunking setup, that is using multi-domain authentication (MDA) using VoIP phones. There are some restrictions to that which you can find out reading through the Config Guide.
