When I connect an Avaya 9600 phone to a H3C 802.1x port, the phone just works, it doesn't need or attempt any sort of authentication. I do not have to have a pc connected in line with the phone.  I like this behavior, but I don't understand it.  I have the voice vlan oui's set statically, so it's operating in secure mode.  Could someone explain why 802.1x on the port bypasses for the phone?
