Displaying the MAC Address List

To display the MAC address table, use the following command:

show netlogin mac-list

When a client needs authentication the best match will be used to authenticate to the server.

MAC-based authentication is VR aware, so there is one MAC list per VR.

Assume we have a supplicant with MAC address 00:04:96:05:40:00, and the switch has the following table:

MAC Address/Mask        Password (encrypted)      Port(s)
--------------------  ----------------------  --------------
00:00:00:00:00:10/48    <not configured>          1:1-1:5
00:00:00:00:00:11/48    <not configured>          1:6-1:10
00:00:00:00:00:12/48    <not configured>          any
00:01:30:70:0C:00/48    yaqu                      any
00:01:30:32:7D:00/48    ravdqsr                   any
00:04:96:00:00:00/24    <not configured>          any

The user name used to authenticate against the RADIUS server would be “000496000000,” as this is the supplicant's MAC address with the configured mask applied. Although this is the default, ExtremeXOS 16.1 allows for a hyphenated mac address to be sent - configure netlogin mac username format hyphenated.

Note that the commands are VR aware, and therefore one MAC list table exists per VR.
