Wired AutoConfig/Ethernet Authentication Tab - Amend Settings via Registry/GPO

Hi

We are in the position that we require the Wired AutoConfig service to be enabled on our client PC's to be used with Cisco ISE devices to control network access.

After enabling that service, we get the 'Authentication' tab within our Ethernet settings. We need a way to roll out settings that reside within the Authentication tab via Group Policy/Registry entries via batch file.

Does anyone happen to know if 1) These settings can be changed via the methods above, and 2) Where they are located

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Rich

https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/magazine/39c28ed4-ac15-4448-ade1-37676a099bc4 has some explanation on how to configure Wired Ethernet Authentication with a GPO. There is a section in the GPO designed to allow you to push the settings you need. It's under Computer Configuration>Windows Settings>Security Settings>Wired Network (802.3) Policies.
