ClearPass Access License

Hi experts

 

If I have a laptop with the OnGuard client connected to a WiFi network, and after 2 hours I connect the network cable. How many Acces licenses do you consume? I understand that you only use 1 OnGuard license, but it is not clear to me in Access what you mean when you say "Endpoint" "Access licenses are consumed based upon concurrent authenticated / authorized endpoints."

1 access license per network session per MAC address.

Hi Tim, thanks for your reply

 

So, in this case, in which I connect to the network through WiFi and Cable at the same time, would I consume 2 access licenses and 1 OnGuard?

Re: ClearPass Access License

Yes. Why would you be connected to both at the same time?

Hi Tim

What happens is that there are many workers who move constantly inside the company with their laptop, for this they use the WiFi network, but when they return to their place of work, they use their network cable. And when you connect your network cable, the WiFi network is still active, so I asked the question.

I would highly recommend that behavior be disabled in the BIOS (assuming Windows). Devices should never sit on two networks.
