EX Switch - Dot1x Supported Supplicants : Vendor Specific Information



Article ID: KB19654 KB Last Updated: 04 Mar 2017Version: 2.0
This document is created to provide information about Dot1x support on popular O/S and applications from different vendors.
This article will provide the users the information required from the dot1x supplicant perspective while configuring or troubleshooting dot1x protocol.
  • Windows XP, Windows Vista, and Windows 7 support 802.1X for all network connections by default.
  • Windows 2000 has support in the latest service pack (SP4) for wired connections.
  • Windows Mobile 2003 and later operating systems also come with a native 802.1X client.
  • An open source project known as Open1X produces a client, Xsupplicant. This client currently is available for both Linux and Windows.
  • Mac OS X has offered native support since 10.3.
  • The iPhone and iPod Touch support 802.1X as of the release of iPhone OS 2.0.[9]
  • Junos Pulse supports dot1x

Note: If 802.1X is not enabled or supported on the network access device (Authenticator), any EAPOL frames from the client are dropped. If the client does not receive an EAP-request/identity frame from the authenticator after three attempts to start authentication, the client transmits frames as if the port is in the authorized state. A port in the authorized state effectively means that the client has been successfully authenticated.
