Per-port RADIUS server group for MAC authentication


The RADIUS group is configured globally or assigned based on the authentication method (802.1x or MAC-based authentication). This feature associates a RADIUS server group to a particular port for MAC-based authentication.

When per port RADIUS group is configured for MAC-based authentication, the authentication requests for all the clients on that port are sent to the configured per-port RADIUS server group. When RADIUS server groups are configured at different levels, the order of priority for MAC authentication is:
  1. Per port

  2. Per Authentication

  3. Global

To connect a RADIUS server with a server group, see Configuring the switch to access a RADIUS server. The feature is only supported for MAC-based authentication for clients.
