Testing 802.1x authentication with monitor mode (480807)

Use the monitor mode to test your system configuration for 802.1x authentication. You can use monitor mode to test port-based authentication, MAC-based authentication, EAP pass-through mode, and MAC authentication bypass. Monitor mode is disabled by default. After you enable monitor mode, the network traffic will continue to flow, even if the users fail authentication.

To enable or disable monitor mode, use the following commands:

config switch-controller security-policy 802-1X edit “<policy_name>”

set open-auth {enable | disable}
