    This isn't an issue if you use packet fence.

    So i'm guessing it isn't an issue with packetfence?

    Ah worked out what you mean now, they both look like the same machine. I can't auth through an unmanaged switch at the moment, need to find a hub to test.

    We've tested this with a hub and it works - with a switch it doesn't, but with a hub it does. The authorised computer gets you on, then you can plug anything into your hub and it'll have access - even if the device has a different MAC and/or IP, as the port has been enabled and the individual packets are not checked.

    I guess the issue is that there is no way to secure ethernet without locking the physical ports away. However I'll still implement 802.1x as it will stop most people just plugging stuff in.

    You can configure packet fence's policies to stomp on this.
