Good Afternoon,

I have 1 XMC+NAC+X440G2

I want to use NAC as radius to authenticate Windows User ( on LDAP/NPS 2012 ) to connect to Switches on SSH.

Thanks in advance

Giuseppe

Hello,

maybe you can explane a little bit more about your configuration. In the example I posted, NAC directly request to the AD via LDAP. Therefore you do not need an NPS. Why do you want to use the NPS?

Good Evenin, now it works ( I did something wrong when I followed the guide ).

A question, is the same confguration to authentcate the V6120 to NAC ( only for management login ) ?

 

Thanks

Hello,

yes XCC admins can be authenticated with the same way.

Unfortunately it does not work ( or probably I did something in a wrong way ).

Now I can authenticate X440 on NAC, no XCC, if I test the radius configuration I receive Authentication error as answer.

I opened a ticket and I replicated the environment on my lab.

Thanks

Giuseppe
