The video shows you how to configure MAC Authentication Bypass (MAB) for both wired an wireless on Cisco ACS 5.4. This is to allow non-802.1x device such as IP phone and printer to access an 802.1x-enable network by authenticating the devices based on their MAC addresses. We will configure a Cisco switch and WLC to support MAB, and use Cisco Access Point and a Windows 7 computer to test wired and wireless MAB respectively.
Part 1 of the video focuses on configuration on the ACS.
