Hi, thanks for the reply.

(Sorry if this is OT) As I understand, I couldn't use 802.1x authentication
on just the switches themselves? Since a client must have certificates to
authenticate to a server. What i just wanted to accomplish is to
authenticate the switches only on the radius server, so this md5 encryption
I had setup should be sufficient?

Last question, could I just create a single user to be used by multiple
switches? Is there any conflict going to happen? Switch count on branches
ranges from 15-50.

Mucho thanks.
