Hi

The 2500 series supports 802.1x:

All you need is RADIUS server for authentication and you can force Dynamic Vlans based on user account.

Good Luck !!!

Re: HP Procurve 2524

Thanks for reply.
I`v got another question.
How many hosts can be active simultaneously per port in dynamic vlan?
I have network with 63 hosts and only one switch HP Procurve 2524.I want to divide these hosts into 7 Vlans belonging to 7 ports on the switch.This mean that per Vlan would exist 9 hosts.
Can I do this?Help, pls and many thanks:)))

Re: HP Procurve 2524

sevar,

generically you can up to 32 authenticated hosts on a 802.1X controlled port...

however, they all have to be authenticated into the same vlan...meaning, the 1st user that 802.1X authenticates and the port is dynamically assigned to a vlan for that user, the subsequent users can still be required to 802.1X authenticate but they cannot be assigned to a different vlan...


btw, the default setting in switch code for 802.1X authentication is 'client-limit 1'...you add the command 'aaa port-access authenticator client-limit ' to increase the authenticated user limit on a specific port(s)...

this link has a nice white paper on configuring freeradius, switches, client and IDM...may be helpful for overall system configs for you:

Re: HP Procurve 2524

With the 2524 I believe it's port-based 802.1x, not client-based. Meaning that once one user successfully authenticates on the port, it will open it up for any other users who will not need to authenticate.
