Hi Guys can anyone send me documentation on how to set this up? I have
been reading a few documents. Do i need to have a certifcate
authourity in place? I have been using IAS to authenticate my dialup
users who connect to a cisco 2511 and that works well. Please help me
if you can. Thanks much.

I want to authenticate LAN users. Users who connect to my cisco
switches. I have a problem of contractors comming into my organization
and plugging into a free port and getting network access. I want to
stop that.

For 802.1x with IAS/AD the options are pretty limited.

You can only use PEAP or EAP-TLS

Hence, you will need a server certificate (peap and tls) and client
certificate (tls only).

If you have a CA then it saves you the hassle of getting the certificates
from a third party.

Thanks much for your reply.
I will now have to figure out how to set up the CA. Do have any links
that you can send me on how to configure this setup?
Thanks again for your assistance.
