3Com managed switches port edge security
Posted on 2009-04-14
I have taken alot of time to try and figure this one out, but I am failing misserablely. I have 3Com managed swithes in my network, models 4200G and 2948. I want to setup port edge security on these switches due to unauthorised PC's being connected to the LAN.
I have spent almost 2 weeks reading on how to do this, and testing but it is not working out. It seems the only type I can use that both models support is 802.1x. I have installed and IAS server for radius and configured it. The radius client on the switch is configured to point to that Radius server. I have enabled 802.1x globally and also on the ports on my test 4200G switch.
In theory it should disable the port if i connect a notebook that is not part of the domain on the switch, guess what it does not do that. I know it is not the device but me behind the keyboard that is missing something.
Can someone please assist me in getting this working or point me in the right direction to guides or anything that could help me. I have read alot of 3com guides to no avail. My time is running out cause I need to implement this before the yearly intrusion test from an external party is conducted.
Your assistance will be highly appreciated .
