Voice vlan with mac 802.1x order authentication on S5700-52P-LI

Issue Description

PC  connects to IP phone  and they connect to the switch. 

 

For PC there is the need to use order of authentication.  Need firstly to check  mac-authen if fail then  dot1x.

For IP phone No auth at all. Phone must work even without PC.  No mac of phones added to Radius.


Solution

Firstly we used recommended software version for S5700 --- V200R003C00SPC300.

This version suggests  mac-bypass function. But  if we made authentication by mac, and after it 802.1x become available process of re-authentication will begin. It  was not suitable for customer.

From Huawei product documentation

Comparing with Cxx manufacturer  switches: Cxx manufacturer may act as both Case 1 and Case 2. Huawei can act only like Case 2, when using V200R003C00SPC300 version.

We tested S5700-52P-PWR-LI-AC.  At  V200R006C00SPC500 release we can config like Case 1.  Following commands appear.  Unified Mode has been realesed.

[interface view] authentication  mac-authen dot1x
                               authentication single-access

 

At  V200R007C00SPC500  version command authentication device-type voice authorize appeared.  It helps not to use authentication for VoIP phones at all.

 

 

So for desired auth scheme we advised customer to use V200R007C00SPC500 with Unified Mode NAC.
