Hi, all,

I am testing WinXP supplicant with HostAP, and Radius server in Windows 

I feel very confused with the broadcast, and unicast key.  In hostapd.conf 
file, it says you need to set the WinXp work around.  If hostap sends both 
broadcast, and unicast keys to WinXP, the work-around will make the two keys 
as unicast keys, when WinXP receives them.

The question is how WinXP which key is used for broadcast, and which is used 
for unicast.

thanks for any help.
