EAPoL Logoff

Hi Steffen,


I have a further question on the VVX range if your able to answer it - Do they support "proxy EAPoL-Logoff".  This essentialy sends a message to the switch when a PC connected via the phone is disconnected (as far as the switch is concerned the port is still up/up as the phone maintains the connection obviously).

Re: EAPoL Logoff

Hello Steve,

Have a look at the <dot1x><eapollogoff/> section in the VVX UCS Admin Guide.






  • If 0, the phone will not send an EAPOL Logoff message on behalf of the disconnected supplicant.

  • If 1, the feature is enabled and the phone will send an EAPOL Logoff message on behalf of the disconnected supplicant connected to the phone’s secondary (PC) port.

As a standard this settings is turned off.

Please ensure to provide some feedback if this reply has helped you so other users can profit from your experience.

Best Regards
