802.1X default role.

hi,

 

just a simple question:

 

Q: I do not have PEF license does this mean I can not see 802.1x default role option in AAA profile ?

 

Q: without PEF my clients will have access only to (DHCP/DNS/HTTP/HTTPS) due to the guest role (which mean my IPT will not be able to work) ?

Re: 802.1X default role.

Without PEF, there is NO concept of roles.  If your clients pass 802.1x authentication they have no restrictions, whatsoever.

Re: 802.1X default role.

Thanks Joseph,

 

I can not find dot1x default role in AAA profile is it because I do not have PEF license ?

 

one more point for PSK authentication (only one key to be used by all wifi phones do I need to assign specific authentication profile of dot1x with EAP and its encapsulation) I do not belive so, therefore if I want to use PSK, I just do it in SSID and then I can leave Authentication profile in VAP empty ?

There are no roles if there is no PEF license.  All users share a role.

 

If you need to create a PSK network, you should use the WLAN/LAN wizard so you do not have to worry about profiles.
