I am trying to set up RADIUS authentication over a Cisco switch and I have gone through every tutorial they have.

I am able to get the RADIUS server to authenticate when I access the CLI of the Cisco switch, but I am not sure which setting to change on the switch in order for the RADIUS server to require authentication over the fastEthernet interfaces. I have tried configuring the fastEthernet interfaces for the authentication as well, to no avail. If anyone could give me a pointer on which config item to change in the switch in order to get this to work, that would be great.

I am running it over a Cisco IE 3000, and the RADIUS server is a freeRadius server on with auth-port 1812 and acct-port 1813. Thank you so much for any and all help

Are you trying to configure RADIUS for switch administration (AAA) or for Network Access Control (802.1x)? –  Christopher Karel Jun 10 at 19:18
