configure netlogin dot1x tag-eapol

configure netlogin dot1x tag-eapol [on | off]


Configures receiving tagged EAPOL packets on dot1x-enabled ports.

Syntax Description

on Turns EAPOL-tagged frames feature on.
off Turns EAPOL-tagged frames feature off . Default is off.


Default is off.

Usage Guidelines

When this feature is on and switch receives tagged EAPOL packet on dot1x-enabled ports, tagged EAPOL response is sent out on those ports. On untagged ports, the EAPOL frames are sent untagged. When this feature is off, switch sends unatgged EAPOL packets on all the tagged/untagged ports. This command allows you to authenticate dot1x users on tagged and unatagged ports.

This command is applicable only for policy-enabled mode.


The following example enables the switch to send tagged EAPOL packets:

 configure netlogin dot1x tag-eapol on


This command was first available in ExtremeXOS 22.4.
