Portal authentication and Mac authentication (in this order)

I need to configure a solution that allows the actions in this order:
Portal authentication with username and password;
Mac authentication after logged into the portal.
This solution uses a controller (620) and authentication is executad for him.


Can we perform this configuration?



Best Regards





Re: Portal authentication and Mac authentication (in this order)

True MAC authentication takes places at the beginning of the association process.   If you want to authenticate the user through Captive Portal, then do an check on the MAC post authentication, you'll need something like ClearPass that is flexible enough to do this check as part of the Captive Portal logon.    It really wouldn't be MAC "authentication"; but more of a MAC check/authorization against a list or known database of MACs.
