802.1x not working on virtual EXOS ?


hi,

i try to make a model of network, because i need to implement in my traineeship a 802.1x for a customer who have 20 x460 switch.

note:
the radius server is a NPS of a Windows 2012 r2
auth protocol: PEAPv0

i have try with Virtual EXOS to implement a test of configuration but i don't understand why i'm not detect any outbound packet of the switch whereas i detect correctly a ping from the switch to the Windows server or the opposite.

i have read "Virtual EXOS installations are not officially supported by GTAC and not all features and functions are implemented." but there are no details ...

Someone can confirm the support of the 802.1x by the VM and/or have a idea to correct the problem ?

Thank you
