Licensing consideration for 802.1x non supplicant auth by UAC

Hi,

From some tests I realized here, it seems that the answer is yes, but just to be sure, is anybody here able to confirm me that 802.1x non supplicant devices (like printers, phones) authenticated on an IC with a MAC realm are counting as 1 of the xx simultaneous users authorized (depending on the license of course).

My question is that, as we just do a simple authentication, with no OAC, no host checking or so, I'm not sure that one non-supplicant client is licensed the same as one supplicant using advanced functionnalites like host checking etc...?

Best regards,

Vincent

MAC authentication do not count against the license count, but does have a soft limits depending on your model and implementation
