I am trying to get ACS to do MAC based authentication where upon client connection the switch forward the MAC address of the client to ACS to either authorize or unauthorize the port. I need to do this in an agentless fashion as most of the devices are not Windows based. Problems
1) Where to put the MAC addrtss in ACS. I am getting told 2 different things. One way is the create a user with the MAC address as the username AND password, have ACS reference the internal datyabase and I should be good the second way I am being told is with Network Access Profiles. Create a profile then under Athentication", enter the MAC address under Internal ACS DB.
SO far both was are still making the Windows based machines prompt for a user name and password. I can't have that. It has to be transparent to the end user. Can any point me in the right direction?
