Re: 802.1X

Hi Basheer,

What all switches do you have in your network?

By the time you can also look at the configuraion guide for 802.1x

Re: 802.1X

Hi Basheer,

Is it 3500XL switches or 3550,3560 and above.

If it is XL switch i am afraid they do not support 802.1x but if it is 3550 and something like that the lin kwhich I posted in my previous email will guide you to configure 802.1x on switches.

rate if it helps ....

Re: 802.1X

802.1x can do both authentication & authorization (if you have an ACS server).. URL's given in the above posts will be of great help, but you need to decide what is your end goal?

If it is only authentication, 802.1x with an external radius server (ACS) will do.. the switches should support 802.1x.. you need to manually configure the vlans on the switch ports...

If you want authorization with authentication, you need to do additional configs on the ACS to dynamically allocate VLANs which will be bound to the 802.1x username.. even if the user roam arounds, he will get the VLAN dynamically, through his username..

If you need additional things like poliicy checking (eg. OS/Virus updates/service packs etc), you need to have 802.1x implemented with a NAC solution....

Hope this helps.. all the best.. rate replies if found useful..
