Usage Guidelines

The device starts the tx-period timer in either of the following situations:
  • When the client initiates authentication, the device sends a unicast Request/Identity packet to the client and starts the tx-period timer. If the client does not respond within the period set by the timer, the device retransmits the authentication request.
  • To authenticate the 802.1X clients that cannot initiate authentication, the device periodically sends multicast Request/Identity packets through the 802.1X-enabled interface to the clients at the interval set by the tx-period timer.

Normally, it is recommended that you retain the default setting of the timer.


# Set the interval at which the device sends authentication requests to 90 seconds.
