I am new to NAC and appreciate you could help me in understanding switch configuration on using Genians.
Current we define switch or trunk port with VLANs on each port.
With Genians, we configure all ports as trunk port?
Genians could detect endpoint and based on policies assign VLAN (IP) to the endpoint?
Hello Chee Meng Hong,
The VLAN management feature that you are discussing in the document is in our company’s road map for a future version of our NAC solution. Unfortunately, at this time we do not have that type of capability. I would suggest looking into a VLAN Management System (VMPS), as it would be relevant to the goal you are trying to achieve.
If you have more issues with our NAC solution or questions about the setup or deployment, I will be more than happy to assist you with them.
Hello Chee Meng Hong,
May I ask what you are trying to do? Are you looking to manage a Guest Network VLAN or is this more of an Internal Employee Network? Do you want to implement that feature through 802.1x? We do have an alternate method to supporting that functionality without 802.1x. I just want to fully understand what your goal is in terms of utilizing the VLANs and what you want to accomplish with a NAC solution, so that I can provide you the best solution and answers.
20:00 is perfect. What day would you like to schedule the meeting for? We are on Eastern Standard Time, which means you are 12 hours behind us. Currently, it is 12:00 our time on March 23rd, and 0:00 your time on March 23rd.
Greetings Chee Meng Hong,
The switch port only has to be Trunked if it is being connected to another Switch. As for the VLAN, our Sensor does not change any of the VLAN configuration you have done. If you have VLAN’s set up, you would follow our Sensor Guide and enter in the VLAN information into the configuration so that the Sensor can read and identify the VLAN and the IP’s connected to those VLAN’s.
If you would like, we can schedule a conference call where we can do a live demo as well as assist you with your issues in real-time so that all your problems will be remediated. If so, please contact us at hello@Genians.com with some time options that are good for you.
