Common NAC operations : configuring MAC address bypass authentication

Hi everyone,

Today I’m going to introduce you how to configure MAC address bypass authentication.

When there are PCs and a few dumb terminals (such as printers) on a network, you can configure 802.1x authentication and MAC address bypass authentication so that the dumb terminals can also connect to the 802.1x authentication network. For example, when many PCs and some dumb terminals are connected to the interfaces GE0/0/1 and GE0/0/5, you can enable 802.1x authentication and MAC address bypass authentication on the interfaces so that the PCs and dumb terminals can connect to the network.


In the V200R005C00 and later versions, only the common NAC mode supports MAC address bypass authentication.

Batch configure multiple interfaces in the system view:  

[HUAWEI] dot1x enable

[HUAWEI] dot1x enable interface gigabitethernet 0/0/1 gigabitethernet 0/0/5
[HUAWEI] dot1x mac-bypass interface gigabitethernet 0/0/1 gigabitethernet 0/0/5

Configure each interface in the interface view:  

<HUAWEI> system-view

[HUAWEI] dot1x enable

[HUAWEI] interface gigabitethernet 0/0/1

[HUAWEI-GigabitEthernet0/0/1] dot1x enable

[HUAWEI-GigabitEthernet0/0/1] dot1x mac-bypass

[HUAWEI-GigabitEthernet0/0/1] quit

[HUAWEI] interface gigabitethernet 0/0/5

[HUAWEI-GigabitEthernet0/0/5] dot1x enable

[HUAWEI-GigabitEthernet0/0/5] dot1x mac-bypass

 I hope it helps to you!
