WLC Prioritizing authentication messages!

Unanswered Question
Oct 8th, 2009

Hi all,

Q: in regards to a WLC - wireless clients and QoS. when using WPA2-AES encryption.

Does anyone know how the authentication messages are prioritized? Are authentication messages (eg. EAPOL) between WLC and wireless client seen as Control traffic (CS3) Voice traffic (EF) or maybe not prioritized at all :-(



I have this problem too.

Way up (from client to WLC) may vary, way back (from WLC to client) is a fixed tag value. Namely, 802.1X data from the client is classified according to the WLAN QoS settings, but packets containing 802.1X frames from the WLC are marked CS4.

Hope it helps
