VMware Worktation wireless bridge with 802.1x

Hi,

 

I am curious if anyone is successfully using VMware Worktation with a VM that has it's network bridged to the wireless adatper and that adapter is doing 802.1x.

 

It works no problem when using the wired interface. Both the physical and virtual computers authenticate individually (I can see them in ClearPass). But when the cable is disconnected and VMware Worktation automatically bridges to the wireless adapter the VM itself loses connection.

 

In ClearPass, I can see authentication attempts, but they come in as the currently logged in user of the physical computer. It seems as though the wireless interface proxies the authentication requests instead of letting them pass through as the wired interface does.

 

Just curious if anyone knows if it is possible to bridge to the wireless interface and have it work like a wired interface does.

 

Cheers
