Usage Guidelines

Usage Scenario

If the device does not receive any response from a user within a specified time after sending an authentication request to the user, the device sends the authentication request again. If the authentication request has been sent for the maximum retransmission times and no response is received, the user authentication fails. In this process, the total number of authentication requests sent by the device is max-retry-value plus 1.


Repeated authentication requests occupy a lot of system resources. When using the dot1x retry command, you can set the maximum number of times according to user requirements and device resources. The default value is recommended.


# In the 802.1X access profile d1, configure the number of times an authentication request can be retransmitted to 802.1X users to 4.
