802.1x wired authentication

Hello, we are looking at implementing 802.1x wired switchport authentication.

We have about 400 switches. Each of these switches will have to connect to our Windows NPS server as a supplicant. This will mean configuring all of those switches as clients on the NPS server.

Is there a simpler way i.e. can I get each of our switches to proxy their 802.1x requests to some sort of central point server. This central point server would then talk direct to the NPS server thus only requiring one NPS client.

Thanks for any help.

Hope you don't mind but I

Hope you don't mind but I moved your question here because it is more to do with authentication etc. than switching.

If you want me to move it back just let me know :)

Hi. You can add your 400

Hi. You can add your 400 switches to NPS using IP ranges rather than individual switch addresses:
