Re: Mac-based authentication

Hi,
Maybe you want to add

aaa authentication port-access eap-radius

I got mine working using IAS.

Re: Mac-based authentication

I added aaa authentication port-access eap-radius still no luck, I know I am missing something very simple.

Re: Mac-based authentication

I get as far as the Radius box however the radius and the switch log me as a failed authentication.

I have upgraded the code to version 10.31 made no differance.

Hi

I suggest you have a look on the Funk event log screen after any unsuccessful login, and try to trace it.

Good Luck !!!

Re: Mac-based authentication

Gave up on Steel belted radius went back to IAS

Added user to the domain Mac-address username and password
Made a member of groups and

Dial in allow access

Account Password settings ; user cannot change password, never expires, store using reversible ( this can take time to replicate, you also need to reset the password if you have just ticked the box as the password is not changed automatically)

IAS

Policy properties : add your windows group I used domain users

Edit profile

Authentication : encrypted authentication (chap)

Advanced :

I added

framed-protocol PPP
service-type framed
tunnel-medium-type 802
You can put you Vlan info in here too

IASparse tool kool for looking at the log files

I am up and running thanks for the help

I found the following Doc very useful

switch config

aaa accounting network radius
radius-server host 172.28.9.69 key *****
aaa port-access mac-based 1-4
aaa port-access mac-based addr-format multi-dash
