- Multiple Authenticated Clients
A single 802.1X interface grants access to multiple authenticated clients on data VLANs.
- Multiple Clients
A single 802.1X interface grants access to multiple clients. Only one of the attached clients must be authorized for the interface to grant access to all clients. If the interface becomes unauthorized, the vEdge router denies network access to all attached clients.
- Single Client
The 802.1X interface grants access only to the first authenticated client. All other clients attempting access are denied and dropped.
Configure the 802.1X interface to grant access to multiple clients:
