I've configured radius on the EAC and  a switch in my lab.
Also configured SNMP on both devices.


Shared secret is the same.  I dubble checked it.

When I do in Java a verify of the radius configuration, I got the error:
'unable to contcact the switch'

What is going wrong?

What is the switch type? 

As long as it's a supported switch NAC will configure your RADIUS settings for you. Depending on switch model NAC will either use a script, or SNMP sets to configure them.

EoS has SNMP support for RADIUS configuration.

XoS needs a CLI credential for script.

type switches: X440G2-24p-10G4 and X440G2-48p-10G4

If  XoS needs a CLI credential, is that the credential that is used when I do an 'open device terminal'?
Because this works.
