Example Configuration

Below is an example 802.1x Authentication via ISW to be authenticated by RADIUS (Remote Authentication Dial In User Service) server. In this basic example, we take port 1 as a testing port, which enables 802.1x in ISW.

With default configuration, use the following web UI settings:

  1. Navigate to Configuration > Security > > Network > NAS.
  2. Select Enabled mode to enable authentication.
  3. Set port1 and port2 as Port-based 802.1x.
