Dear All,

We try to configure port based authentication on cisco switches 4507,2900 series with Microsoft ISA as Radius servers in our wired network.

What are the configs do we need to apply in all the devices including XP workstation. We would like to go without certificate.

Please help us to implement this as we are very new to this areana.

802.1X defines 802.1X port-based authentication as a client-server based access control and authentication protocol that restricts unauthorized clients from connecting to a LAN through publicly accessible ports. An authentication server validates each supplicant (client) connected to an authenticator (network access switch) port before making available any services offered by the switch or the LAN.

802.1X support requires an authentication server that is configured for Remote Authentication Dial-In User Service (RADIUS). 802.1X authentication does not work unless the network access switch can route packets to the configured RADIUS server. To verify that the switch can route packets, you must ping the server from the switch.
