Setting the Switchto Client Frame Retransmission Number

If during the 802.1x authentication process the switch does not receive a response from the client, it resends the EAP-Request/Identity frame twice before restarting the authentication process. To change the number of times the EAP-Request/Identity frame is sent, use the following interface configuration command:

dot1x max-req count

The count value is an integer from 1 and 10 designating the maximum number of requests that are sent to the client.

Example 18-8 shows the command used to set the maximum frame retransmissions on port 3 of a Catalyst switch to 4.
