This document describes an issue faced by an user where Dot1x clients doesn't get connected to network by using DHCP address configured on 3560.
What is Dot1x?
Dot1x or technically known as 802.1X is a standard which was designed to increase the level of security for WLANs. 802.1X platforms the authentication process for wireless LANs, which authenticate the user by using AAA Server(Centeral Authentication) .
802.1X uses below mentioned protocol:
EAP stands for Extensible Authentication Protocol.It works on Token Ring, wireless LANs,exchange of massages during authentication, Ethernet
Wireless LAN setup is generally implemented in such a manner that all devices are authenticated by 802.1X.Some terms we need to understand:
Supplicant: an user request
Authenticator: access point
Access point directs the user's client software to provide an EAP message while the user remains in an unauthorized state. In return access point recieves an EAP message stating a request that user should enter his/her credentials. Identity is provided to access point by the user's client software and authenticator forwards the identity to AAA server.Authentication server runs algoritham to check user credentials which in turn sends acception or rejection message back to the access point. If acception is received, client's state is changed to authorized and normal traffic starts.
The ip arp inspection vlan command conflicts with the dynamic nature of dot1x and prevents clients from getting a DHCP IP address. The ip dhcp snooping command should not be used when authenticating users through dot1x because there is no point-filtering DHCP on ports in a 100 percent DHCP environment.
To resolve the problem, issue these commands:
Switch(config)# no ip arp inspect. There are no static IP address hosts off the switch.
Switch(config)# no ip dhcp snooping. In a 100% DHCP environment , there is no point in filtering DHCP on the ports.
So I have come to learn that AMP doesn't have features that I am accustom to. Is there a way, beside creating more policies, to apply an exclusion to a single system? I am needing to create a 5 separate exclusion for my backup software. The machine f...
If my firewall can route to a certain subnet that I haven't included in my split tunnel, any authorized user can add that route by open connect Linux app and get into my network, how can we enforce only the split tunnel ACL subnets to get in? Thanks
We created rules to block inbound and outbound traffic using a geolocation object. Both rules were at the top of the ACP, and were basically inverse of each other. The rules were set up as follows:----------------------------------------------------------...
Hi all, I have an ASA 5525x with PC-A on the INSIDE network with IP address 10.20.32.40. PC-B is in DMZ with an IP address of 10.20.30.10. The security level for INSIDE is 100 and DMZ is 50. I have rules to allow PC-A to communicate with...
