clear dot1x



Reset the authentication state of an interface or delete 802.1X statistics from the device. When you reset an interface using the interface or mac-address options, reauthentication on the interface is also triggered. The device sends out a multicast message on the interface to restart the authentication of all connected supplicants. If a MAC address is reset, then the device sends out a unicast message to that specific MAC address to restart authentication.


interface <[interface-name]>

Reset the authentication state of all the supplicants (also, clear all the authentication bypassed clients) connected to the specified interface (when the interface is an authenticator) or reset the authentication state for the interface itself (when the interface is a supplicant).

mac-address [mac-addresses]

Reset the authentication state of the specified MAC addresses.

statistics <interface interface-name>

Clear 802.1X statistics on all 802.1X-enabled interfaces. If the interface option is specified, clear 802.1X firewall statistics for that interface or interfaces.
