Does 802.1X work on the wired port of a RAP in the RN version of ArubaOS?

Product and Software: This article applies to all Aruba controllers and ArubaOS 3.x-rn.


Currently, 802.1X authentication on the wired port of a remote access point (RAP) works only in tunnel mode.


Therefore, when using split-tunneling or bridging for your wired profiles, 802.1X authentication does not work unless it is using a pre-shared key.


Wireless 802.1X still works in enterprise or personal configurations.


However, on ArubaOS 5.0 and later, 802.1x is supported on tunnel, split-tunnel, and bridge mode.
