dot1x with CISP(NEAT)

I am currently setting up a couple C3560CG-8PC-S (Version 12.2(55)EX3)  as conference room switches that can be passed out by the helpdesk. The location has mostly C3560-48 (Version 12.2(44)SE5). What I did so far is configure CISP for both switches and everything is working fine.

As soon as I start to configure the edge ports of the c3560CG for dot1x or mab ('dot1x pae authenticator' or 'mab') and the arp entries time out ('clear arp-cache' works too) the communication to the downstream switch dies. ARP entries are showing as incomplete, but I can see the arp request and the arp reply on the the uplink port of the 3560CG. As soon as I remove both commands again from the port configs the switch then processes the arp reply and can be reached again. What am I missing to configure dot1x on those edge ports?

Thanks,

Fabian

Are you handing down the av pair from the radius server to make it a trunk link? device-traffic-class=switch

dot1x with CISP(NEAT)

Hi Tarik,

Thanks for the reply.

The entire CISP part works; I do send the av-pair device-traffic-class=switch and the port configures as a trunk as expected and I can reach the supplicant switch.

My Problem starts as soon as I configure 'mab' or 'dot1x pae authenticator' on one of the edge ports of the DownStream Switch. The arp entries for the default gateway, radius server, etc. go into a timeout and that's it then.

'debug arp' shows the outbound arp request but the replies don't show. With Wireshark I do see them coming in on the switch uplink port, they just don't get processed it seems.

This is the port config I am trying:

switchport mode access

switchport port-security

authentication event fail action authorize vlan 280

authentication event server dead action authorize vlan 280

authentication event no-response action authorize vlan 280

authentication event server alive action reinitialize

authentication order mab dot1x

authentication priority dot1x

authentication port-control auto

mab                                   <--- causes switch to stop responding

            dot1x pae authenticator    <--- causes switch to stop responding

dot1x timeout tx-period 5

dot1x timeout supp-timeout 5

dot1x max-start 2

spanning-tree portfast

Any ideas?

Fabian,

Can you open a TAC case on this so we can look at this together.

Thanks,

Hi,

I already did; it may take a few days for our reseller to put the request through.

about same Issue :3560CG-8PC

about same Issue :

3560CG-8PC-S (Version 12.2(55)EX3 or 150-2.SE5) Uplink to 3750v2 (version 12.2(55)SE9)

Work well when "ip verify source" is disable on the interface

when ip verify source is enable " (with or without tracking option) authentication successed with IP traffic but 2 minuts later IP traffic is KO.

---> to workaround ( for 2 minutes) "clear ip arp-cache" on 3560C and traffic go on ....

---> or disable ip verify traffic

have you the case number ? please
