Native dot1x doesn't support RDP. Because in 802.1x there is no Layer3 connectivity until user/machine got auth.And when user is logged out..It's like the certificate got missing info - so RDP will not work. (RDP Working in Layer3)

More workaround.

But I discourage it.. it defeat the purpose of 802.1x with RDP. The alternative is web-based RDP.
