dot1x authentication using Radius 2003 and cat 6513

Unanswered Question

I have installed a new Radius server on 2003 enterprise edition and configured my cat 6513(cat OS) as radius client.

When I test my radius server using Xp client, I get authentication failure log message and the client is not able to log on to the domain.

I am using PEAP-MSCHAP-V2 as the authentication method.dot1x has been configured on the switchport where client Xp is connected.

I cannot understand where the things are going wrong.

Pls help

Hello Sagar,

a cople of things could be going wrong here. Which RADIUS server software are you using ? I know of one problem that can be fixed for XP clients by means of a hotfix, check this link:

PEAP authentication is not successful when you connect to a third-party RADIUS server


Also, which CatOS version are you running ?

Hi Georg,

I am using the IAS feature of Windows 2003.

The IOS version of my CatOS is 6.4(10).

In Windows Server 2003 there's a registry setting to check all the fields of the Radius packet. (Google for it). My _strong_ recommendation is to turn this feature off.

There was a remote access policy that was configured as Ethernet. When I remove that policy, I was able to logon. Here's the IAS log which defines NAs port-type="not present" which I am not able to understand.
