HI Anthony,

thanks for your inputs, Just to repeat your words so can i conclude that
there is no point in configuring dot1x without aaa.
Can u redirect me to some document which says that without aaa it is of
no use configuring dot1x . (If u have )

Yes - Catalyst switches can do port-based authentication, and this
feature relies upon the use of AAA. In order to have AAA on the Catalyst
switch, you must first use the aaa new-model command.

Hi Experts,

i m bit confused about the authentication of dot1x. Is there any meaning

configuring DOT1x without aaa new-model. I think authentication will not
happen if we dont confgure aaa with dot1x. But i m not sure about it.
Even i
m not able to search any document about their combination which says yes

no for AAA with dot1x.  Can somebody help me to understanding this

Do i always require aaa when i configure dot1x ?

thanks and regards
