    Hi @Abasko,

    Thanks for providing log and configuration.
    After I import your switch configuration to my LAB switch and test with TekRADIUS, it's working on my site.

    As I check your TekRADIUS (V5.60 LT) log, not sure if your client pass the authentication or not.
    If a client passes auth, you should see the a authentication successful log.
    24.12.2021 14:15:16.003 - RadAuth req. from : 192.168.60.51:1045 [UDP]

     Size             : 79 / 79
     Identifier       : 3
     Attributes       : 

     NAS-IP-Address = 192.168.60.51
     NAS-Identifier = GS1920
     User-Name = serefli-98-e7-f4-5c-13-fb

    24.12.2021 14:15:16.050 - Authentication successful for user 'serefli-98-e7-f4-5c-13-fb'

    May you check if there is any discrepancy between your config and mine.
    Here is the settings in my LAB environment:

    For GS1920-24HP switch (I use my own password instead)




    For TekRADIUS






    Open Wireshark to check if TekRADIUS receives client's radius request from switch and RADIUS forwards Access-Accespt to switch.


    Hope it helps,
    Adam

    Hi @Abasko,

    As discuss in PM, seems that you've set a wrong VLAN as Guest VLAN.
    It leads to even a client pass MAC authentication, the client cannot receive a correct IP address to reach your data LAN because the client is allocated to Guest VLAN.

    Once you remove the Guest VLAN setting and it works as expected.

    Please feel free to let us know if questions. ;)

  • Hi Adam,

    Thanks for your answer. 

    There are no event logs about that failed authantication client MAC in switches log page.

    There is only this text

     - Info -

    But I installed syslog server to collect system log files. Output is ;
