Recommended Configuration Flow


Step1   Add Access Device

Add an access device that supports 802.1X and AAA to the iMC system, so that the access device can cooperate with the iMC system to deliver 802.1X and AAA features.

Step2   Add Service

Add a service to the iMC system.

A service is a set of policies for user authentication and authorization.

This step shows how to add a service that contains no policy to the iMC system.

Step3   Add Account

Add an access account to the iMC system.

Each user accessing the network must have an account configured in the iMC. It contains such information as account name and password.

This step shows how to add a user account to the iMC and apply for the service configured at step 2.

Step4   Config Access Device

An access device is used to control access of users. It allows authenticated users and denies unauthorized users.

This step shows how to configure a RADIUS scheme, an ISP domain and the 802.1X feature on the device.

Step5   Verify Configuration

An iNode client refers to the authentication client installed on terminal users' PC to work with iMC.

1)        Create an 802.1X connection on the iNode client

2)        Use the account added at step 3 to initiate an authentication.
