NAC end-system MAC Mask


Userlevel 5
Hi,

Currently running version 8.0.2.42, and am in the process of writing a MAC Mask in NAC / Control.

What I'm not sure is if I have entered it correctly, and can't seem to find any working examples.

Here is what I have entered:



Problem with this is when I hit update it will just permanently sit there 'Loading' until I cancel it:



I can go back into it again but the MAC address part is missing, so perhaps I'm doing something wrong?



If anyone has example might be good?

Many thanks.

Wasn't too far off in the end, the answer is:

Wouldn't work for my APs as you'd see on my AP MAC list - I've some older models and even the Extreme APs are not from the same production patch.

Might be better to use only the vendor OUI = D4:84:66:00:00:00 FF:FF:FF:00:00:00 instead of also using the 4th byte.

Hi Martin,

I would have expected that all six bytes of the MAC need to be specified, similar to IPv4 networks, as you found out.

It would be nice for EMC / EAC to issue an error message if the input is obviously incorrect (e.g. missing bytes).

Thanks,
Erik
