Novell Client for Windows 2000/XP/2003 4.91 Support Pack 4
802.1x Authentication


Configuration information related to 802.1x support in the Novell Client 4.91 SP4.


With the Novell Client 4.91 SP4, the 802.1x tab must be enabled and visible in order for the 802.1x authentication to be used. (Same as with the other tabs, like "Scripts", in which you must have the tab enabled in order for scripts to run.)

With the 802.1x tab visible, it is possible to "gray out" individual fields, so that the user can't change them. The following registry value will disable the "Login using 802.1X" checkbox so that the user cannot de-select it:

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Novell\Login\Tab Settings\EAP]

The other supported settings are:

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Novell\Login\Tab Settings\EAP]

Note that the "Tab Settings" key does not exist by default, and is not to be confused with the "TabInfo" key.
