User device count how it works

Hello Guys

If i wanted to restrict a 802.1x network to just 3 devices how would i need to apply this rule?

 

For example to this devices

 

IP phone

Laptop

Cellphone

 

I would need to create a rule that says its Unique-Device-Count GREATER_THAN 4?

I ask if its GREATER THAN 4 because the laptop have the 802.1x on cable and wireless, im not sure if the laptop counts 2 because in the endpoint repository it will count 2 mac addresses for the same device? or it will be GREATER THAN 3 devices still?

Re: User device count how it works

If the user logging in is the same on all 3 devices, I believe it would count as 4 because endpoints are defined by MAC address and the laptop would have 2. (as you mentioned)

Cheers
