dot1x mac-auth-bypass

What is the lowest series switch that this command is available in? From what I have seen you have to have at least a 2960.

Is this command available in 2940's or 2950's, and if not will it ever be?


Re: dot1x mac-auth-bypass

Hi Friend,

Yes, The lowest series switch which supports this command is 2960.

At this time this command is not supported on 2940/2950 switches, but may be in future releases.Both the switches are still runnning and not yet EOS. So you can expect some new features in future releases.

Re: dot1x mac-auth-bypass

Are there any options for someone who wants to authenticate devices against radius without user intervention other than mac-auth-bypass?

It seems like this is a big feature, which should not be left out of lower cost switches.

Any ideas would be helpful.
