we have a lot of Brocade FSL edge switches and setup them with mac-based vlan (no dot1x, simply mac address auth.). Everything work's fine.
I did some tests with multi-device-port authentication and it works also well, with no changes in our radius setup.
After i read the documentation again and again, i can't find any basic difference between this two methods to authenticate clients.
Can somebody tell me the difference of this two authentication methods (maybe multi-device porth authentication has more features)?
Thanks in advance

My understanding multi-device porth authentication only appliys to dot1X. Without multi-device porth authentication the first device to auth is what will carry alll devices connecting to that port.
Hope that helps
