Can dot1x authetication relayed by ACSv4.2 to another RADIUS Server ?

Dear all,

I'm doing dot1x authentication with ACSv4.2 , my goal is the dot1x authentication request (EAP-MD5) is relayed to another RADIUS Server by ACSv4.2.

I'd configured the ACS to use External Database with Radius Token Server, but it did not work. With the same configuration , the login authentication is relayed correctly.

Can dot1x authetication relayed by ACSv4.2 to another RADIUS Server ?

Re: Can dot1x authetication relayed by ACSv4.2 to another RADIUS

I think it is possible because Extensible Authentication Protocol (EAP), provides the ability to deploy RADIUS into Ethernet network environments. The 802.1x standard, also known as EAP over LAN (EAPoL), concerns the part of the wider EAP standard that relates to broadcast media networks. Upon connection, EAPoL provides a communications channel between an end user on a client LAN device to the AAA server through the LAN switch. The functionality is similar to what Point-to-Point Protocol (PPP) servers on point-to-point links provide.

Hope the following URL helps you:
