Confirm CE500 802.1X VLAN assignment?

Unanswered Question
Oct 21st, 2009

Is anyone able to confirm that the CE500 support VLAN assignment from a radius server when using 802.1X?

I have only been able to get based port authentication working on the CE500. It seems like the VLAN settings sent by the Radius server is just ignored by the switch.

Config works perfectly on a WS2950-12 so I know that radius config is good.

I have this problem too.

802.1x is not supported for the IP Phone+Desktop and Guest SmartPort


Dot1x only supported when using "Desktop" smartport with CNA.

But I still have not been able to confirm if 802.1X - VLAN assignment is a support feature on the CE500.

I have only been able to get 802.1X - Port Authentication working.
