CPPM-MAC Authentication configuration against static host list.
Introduction : This article explains about creating a MAC Auth service.
Environment : This best applies to CPPM 6.2 and above
Configuration Steps :
Login to CPPM and navigate to "Configuration - - >services - - > Add services."
Select MAC authentication as type from drop down option and enter the name of service and click on next. Based on your requirement you could add service rules to filter the RADIUS request and hit the appropriate service. We would suggest to use the defaults first and then once authentication starts working, customize it later.
By default authentication method will be MAC AUTH. You could add new authentication source to add new MAC address host list as shown in below screen shot ( highlighted ).
Create an Enforcement profile with details as shown below and map it to our service.
Save the configuration and exit.
New MAC auth service will be created with green status indicator for user device MAC authentication.
