Configuring the Authenticator

To configure the IEEE 802.1x Port-Based Network Access Control protocol on Ethernet interfaces you must configure the authenticator statement at the [edit protocols dot1x] hierarchy level. Use the authentication-profile-name access-profile-name statement to specify the authenticating RADIUS server, and use the interface statement to specify and configure the Gigabit Ethernet or Fast Ethernet interface on the router specifically for IEEE 802.1x protocol use; both at the [edit protocols dot1x authenticator] hierarchy level.
