MAC address formats sent to the RADIUS server

The MAC address of the client is used as the username and password for authentication.

When MAC authentication is configured, the ICX device authenticates the client using the MAC address and the RADIUS server. The device uses the MAC address for both the username and the password in the request sent to the RADIUS server. Several formats can be used to send the MAC address to the RADIUS server, including sending the MAC address in upper case, The format is configurable using the command mac-authentication password-format. The lowercase option and xxxxxxxxxxxx are the default format.
