802.1X user aunthentication

HI,

I'm trying this question here, because it's a "switching" related forum, but it can also be posted to the wireless one.

The question is: If I use 802.1X authentication on a switch (lets say a 2950T-24), then: Can I have many users per port? Whats does 802.1X authentication do: enables a port or enables a MAC address to send traffic to the network? This question is done thinking in that I may have an access point connected to one port and I'd like to use 802.1X to authenticate wireless clients.

Thanks for your reply,

chabral

Re: 802.1X user aunthentication

It authorizes the port. The access point must secure the wireless lan.
