    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.
