Dear all,

I configured a B3 Enterasys switch (with the latest firmware on it B3-661100008) for MAC authentication purpose via a RADIUS Server (Ip address

I used the following commands:

set radius server 1 1812 Password realm network-access
set radius enable
set macauthentication enable
set macauthentication password Password
set macauthentication port enable *.*.*
set macauthentication portquietperiod 60 *.*.*

The problem is that the switch is not sending any authentication request to Radius Server, tested with tcpdump and wireshark, even if ping the connectivity between them is ok. I used the same configuration on a C5 Enterasys switch and it works!

Somebody could kindly help me?

Thank you in advance
Best Regards
