configure netlogin mac username case

configure netlogin mac username case (lower | upper}


Sets option to send the Network Login (NetLogin) MAC Authentication MAC address in either uppercase or lowercase for user name or password.

Syntax Description

netlogin Configures NetLogin specific settings.
mac Configures NetLogin settings specific to MAC.
username Configures MAC user name credential attributes.
case Configures MAC user name case.
lower Use lowercase (for example: aa:bb:cc:dd:ee:ff).
upper Use uppercase (for example: AA:BB:CC:DD:EE:FF). Default.


By default, the uppercase is used.

Usage Guidelines

When the user name case is configured as lowercase, if the client with MAC address aa:bb:cc:dd:ee:ff sends a frame, Netlogin MAC sends “aabbccddeeff” (default “None” delimiter) as username and default password for authentication.


The following example sets the NetLogin MAC to be sent in lowercase:

# configure netlogin mac username case lower
