Mar 11, 2010
- Cisco Catalyst 4000 Series Switches
Known Affected Releases
Symptom: We have a customer here that has a Siemens IP phone thats meant to do 802.1X. However, the IP phone is sending a tagged EAPoL Start frame into the switch port. When the tag number corresponds to the access VLAN, authentication is triggered, when it should NOT, according to the 802.1X spec. See below: Conditions: Seen only when a 802.1Q tagged EAPoL Start frame is used to trigger 802.1X authentication on the switchport.
