802 1x For Mac

How to configure wired 802.1X for Mac OSX 10.6.3 Open System Preferences. Open Network under Network & Wireless. Click on Advanced and we get to TCP/IP settings. Make sure the option Configure IPv4 is set to Using DHCP: Choose the DNS tab and make sure there are nothing there. Remove them with the -button on the bottom. Fallback: we use MAB as a fallback for 802.1X. The switch will first attempt 802.1X and when it fails, it uses MAB for authentication. By default, MAB only supports a single endpoint (device) per switchport. When it sees more than one source MAC address, it causes a security violation. 802.1x RADIUS accounting involves recording the information of devices that are authenticated to the 802.1x network and the session duration. The device information, usually the MAC address and port number, are sent in a packet to the accounting server when the session begins.
