Access Point Port Configuration for Wired 802.1X

Hello

I am looking into implementing 802.1X (Wired and Wireless) currently and am new to its implementation. From what I can see MR APs don't have supplicant support currently. I can see where we configured RADIUS on the SSIDs but am unsure how to configure the switch ports to which APs will connect. Do the ports need to be left open (no 802.1X) or do the APs need to be configured as clients on the RADIUS Server? My preference is to configure 802.1X on all wired ports.

 

Its is a full Meraki setup (MS Switch and MR APs) with Windows RADIUS Server. Switch and AP addressing is done via DHCP.

 

Thanks in Advance.

You  can authenticate  them  on their  mac  address.

Thanks.

Do you mean MAB (MAC Authentication Bypass)?

Yes,

Or the hybrid if you want just one policy

 

but i guess  a second policy will be better combined with Multi-Host

I wouldn't bother using 802.1x for the APs themselves on the MS switch ports.  There is a new feature coming along which will allow an MS to authenticate an attached MR automatically.  I'd wait for that to be released.  When?  I don't know.
