802.1x on MX Ports

Hi Meraki Gugus,

 

In the past it was possible to configure 802.1x or MAC authentication on MX ports. See Link .This option is not anymore possible in the Dashboard. Does Anybody know how to do it now?

 

Thanks for any Help.

MX68 and 802.1x 

 

There is the thread. I opened a ticket with support then and confirmed not available on all 67 or 68 devices with 15.13. Might be different now that 15.15 is available, but none of the release notes indicate that.

MX67-68 still don't support .1X with the latest Beta software and doesn't seem to be in their roadmap either.

@RaphaelL interesting. Have you heard anything about why it's not on the map, or is this gut feeling?

I would love to know if this is ever supposed to be available on the MX67/68. I would also wonder why was it left off in the first place?

Hi All,

Thanks for all this replays. It seem to be a bigger Problem. I will ask this to my Swiss Meraki Engeneer.

Yeah that was an annoying caveat I only found out recently. I still don't understand why it isn't there. Seems like a software thing to me...

Maybe bringing it in line with other models? I don't know. Just realized 64s, 65s, and Zs were the only things that ever supported it.

Re: 802.1x on MX Ports

Well it should be supported in 68 too. I mean, the 68cw is practically designed to be used as a branch in a box solution. So endpoints will connect to it directly. And they will likely be very accessible too in that case. So .1x makes a lot of sense.

Hi all,

 

I just got thee information from a Meraki Guru that the MX67 and MX68 will get 802.1x soon true a software update.

So lets wait and see 🙂
