configure netlogin mac timers reauth-period

configure netlogin mac ports [port_list | all] timers [{reauth-period [reauth_period]} {reauthentication [on|off]} {delay [delay_period]}]


Configures the reauthentication period for network login MAC-based authentication.

Syntax Description

reauth_period Specifies time after which the switch will attempt to re-authenticate an authenticated supplicant. The range is 0, 30 to 86,400 seconds.
reauthentication Configure mac reauthentication.
on MAC reauthentication is enabled.
off MAC reauthentication is disabled.
delay Configure MAC authentication delay period.
delay_period MAC authentication delay period. 0-120 seconds range.


The default is 0 (disabled).

Usage Guidelines

This command allows you to configure the reauth-period for network login MAC-based authentication. The session-timeout configuration on the RADIUS server overrides the reauth-period if it has been configured.

In MAC mode, if reauthentication is turned off, globally and per-port, using this command, a session timeout sent by RADIUS takes precedence and local timers are ignored.


The following command configures a MAC authentication delay period of 100 seconds on port 39:

configure netlogin mac ports 39 timers delay 100


This command was first available in ExtremeXOS 12.1.

The delay keyword and variable were added in ExtremeXOS 21.1.
