AAA using Radius with 802.1x

 

Hello there,

 

We're going to be implementing 802.1x on our network of some reaallly old switches (6509 Cat OS with MSFC 2).  We use radius for AAA authentication and I've been reading that .1x uses radius.  How is that going to work?  Do I just add another radius server in my radius server command and, more importantly, will .1x work on Cat OS running 8.2.1?  I've been trowling the forums and I can't seem to find anyone who's actually running .1x on the old Cat OS switches to see what kind of gotchas I can expect to run into.

 

Any advise, assistance would be greatly appreciated!
 

Thanks

 

Kiley

Salodh, Thanks but that

Salodh,

 

Thanks but that document is for a 2950 and we have a 6509 but, the good thing is I just found out our Tier 3 engineers will not be adding dot1x to the 6509 since it has only trunks - no access ports.  Thanks very much for your reply!
