Re: What is required for UAC to run 802.1x?

In short, L3 enforcement is through a Juniper firewall (either ScreenOS or Junos based). It enforces network access at layer 3(IP Layer).

Layer 2 enforcment is done at the switch or wireless access point level and uses the 802.1X authentiction protocol suite to authenticate a user BEFORE they get any network access.

Re: What is required for UAC to run 802.1x?

When will pulse be available on Mac OS X? It's been asked for and talked about for over a year. It's also been alluded to that it's coming soon. Is there any roadmap as to when soon is? Having to roll out different clients for Windows and mac for VPN, UAC, etc is a major pain, as is supporting them all.

With the following BOM:
1 x UAC (MAG4610)
1 x 500 users (part number: ACCESSX600-ADD-500U)
500 x 802.1x client (Junos Pulse client or OAC)

Does it support L2 and L3 authentication? (Y/N)
Will we have security policy control on L2 and L3 access? (Y/N)
