Order of secure network authentication


Hi all,

My System:
I am using Stratodesk No Touch OS (Ubuntu based). I have 802.1x authentication set up.

My Problem:
When the OS communicates with the switch it first authenticates using the MAC address and the using the 802.1x authentication, but my switch is expecting it in the opposite order - first the 802.1x authentication and then the MAC address. This is making the authentication process fail

What I expect to happen
For the OS to authenticate using the MAC address first and only then the 802.1x authentication in order for the authentication to pass.

Thanks in advance for any help available

Why do you turn on MAC address authenticates when 802.1x authentication is used? 802.1x is good enough.

Thank you so much for your reply!

I work in a big organization and now checked with my supperiors and as you say 802.1x will be enough for our needs.

My problem now is that I do not know how to disable mac authentication, I couldn't find instructions online (I am sure they exist somewhere, but I couldn't fdind anything relavent when I searched). Is this something you can instruct me on? As I mentionede in my original post I am using Stratodesk No Touch OS (Ubuntu based).

Thank you again for your response.
I couldn't find anything that could help me in the link you sent, but for now I found an ugly hack around it. If I reset my network manager somehow it works, maybe was misunderstanding something all along.

For now I am sorted. Thanks again for all the help!

(This isn't really a solved thread but is a finished one, I am not sure how I should mark it, if you know please let me know)
