Hi every body!

1) Does 802.1x standard require the use of radius? or we can use any other server with eap methods configured?


Thanks a lot!

According to the RFC it is optional -


http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc3580.txt


However all the implementations i have seen use RADIUS as the authentication server.
