  • 1.  how to configure dot1x on ExtremSwtich ?

    Hello, I am new on ExtremSwitch and am trying to build a port based authentication with Freeradius.
    • And i need your confirmation please about my steps for configuring the Extrem switch as authenticator

    This is my Lab Schematic:

    This is my switch config that i need your confirmation for it: (is it correct ?)
    create vlan purgatory
    configure netlogin vlan purgatory
    enable netlogin dot1x
    enable netlogin ports 1 dot1x
    configure netlogin ports 1 mode port-based-vlans
    configure netlogin ports 1 restart
    configure vlan A ipaddress
    configure radius netlogin primary server 1812 client-ip vr "VR-Default"
    configure radius netlogin primary shared-secret ilovesecret
    enable radius netlogin

    on the radius side (MD5 authentication) i created a :
    client switch {
    ipv4add =
    secret = ilovesecret

    on my kali side i just enable port based authentication from the network setting but am not sure is that enough ?

    when i send request with radclient, my kali not authenticated on the switch  ? do i miss something in my config ?

    I hope if i detailed my lab and config well , i will be waiting your answers please, thx

    Could you check the 'show log' output for any 802.1x messages to see whether there are any failures or authentication attempts? The following article could be used as a guideline to compare the configuration for 802.1x: https://extremeportal.force.com/ExtrArticleDetail?an=000081809&q=802.1x%20nps

    Running a packet capture on the switch, client, and server may be ideal to see whether there any request and responses and help isolate if the EAPOL packets are being sent received.
