HP 2600 series and Avaya phones with 802.1x

Hi all,

I'm trying to implement 802.1x authentication using the 2600 series and have run into a bit of a problem. The workstation setup is an Avaya 4621SW phone with the PC connected into the passthrough switch on the phone, and then the phone is connected to a 2650-PWR. (I'm using mac-based authentication, btw). The phone will authenticate fine, but it doesnt look like the PC behind it is getting auth passed through. Or am I misunderstanding something in the way 802.1x is supposed to work? For anyone who knows the Avaya 4600 series, they do have a passthrough option for 802.1x built in, and right now I've got it setup to pass through with proxy logoff. So, I guess my question is, has anyone tried setting this up this way? If not, does anyone have any recommendations on how to do this properly?

take a look at the access and security guide for the switch and take a look at this part.
Standard only one mac adress is allowed when mac authentication is active.

Taken from the guide :

aaa port-access mac-based [e] < port-list > [addr-limit <1-32>]
Specifies the maximum number of authenticated
MACs to allow on the port. (Default: 1)
