TOPIC: 802.1x authentication using packet tracer? HELP!!

802.1x authentication using packet tracer? HELP!! 9 years 1 month ago #33876

Hi everyone,

I'm using the newest version of packet tracer, i'm trying to set a 802.1x port based authentication but the instruction "dot1x" doesn't work for me (in (config) mode), anyone having this trouble?

When i tried to set a radius sever authentication, the client should it be the address of the vlan of the cisco switch?

When i do so, the only thing i got is when i access to CLI of the switch there is a demand of a username and password but me i want the PCs to be authenticated by a login and a password, do you have any clue? how can i make the PCs authenticate and verify the result?
What is "key" for in AAA server configuration and how can i set it correctly?

I know these are lots of question but i'm using cisco documentation but still things aren't very clear. :(

Thanks for helping me.
