Dear All,


I have configured Radius server inorder to autheticate my devices connected on juniper ex3200 switch/SRX240. after intial configuration of radius server, i configure switch through command

#set protocols dot1x authenticator interface ge-0/0/1.0 mac-radius(mac-of device)


Now mac authetication on srx is not supported also above command is not working on srx,

Kindly anybody guide me any alternate solution to autheticate connected devices on srx through their mac addresses.

Hi Ahmed,


Can you please tell me the model of your SRX as this command works fine on branch series SRX.

Hi, that command only ENABLES mac based authentication for that interface.

It says nothing about which MAC address the SRX should authenticate.


This command is that you should use instead:


set protocols dot1x authenticator static ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff interface fe-0/0/6 vlan-assignment 666


or something like that as to it corresponds to your network environment.
