dot1x supplicant port-control

This command sets the ports authorization state (Authorized or Unauthorized) either manually or by setting the port to auto-authorize upon startup. By default all the ports are authenticators. If the port‘s attribute needs to be moved from <authenticator to supplicant> or <supplicant to authenticator>, use this command.
