When an 802.1x authentication request to a RADIUS server times out, the FortiSwitch port can be assigned to the timeout VLAN specified in the security policy.
In this example, a 802.1x security policy has been applied on port6 of the managed FortiSwitch. The PC tries to authenticate to the RADIUS server, but the server is not available. After 10 seconds, the authentication times out, and the PC is put into the timeout VLAN vlan22.
