Authentication Server Side
The RADIUS server used for authentication
must be EAP-capable. Consider the following when choosing a RADIUS server:
- Types of authentication methods supported on RADIUS, as
- Need to support VSAs. Parameters such as Extreme-Netlogin-Vlan-Name
(destination vlan for port movement after authentication) and Extreme-NetLogin-Only
(authorization for network login only) are brought back as VSAs.
- Need to support both EAP and traditional user name-password
authentication. These are used by network login and switch console login
For information on how to use and configure your RADIUS
server, refer to Configuring the RADIUS Client and to the
documentation that came with your RADIUS server.
