Thank you, the problem is solved. Had to do with certificates on the 
radius side.
Another question:
I would like to see, where in a special configuration the slowest part. 
Therefore I would like to fire up as much authentication requests as 
possible via eapol_test.
So, is there a configuration option, that let's eapol_test fire up a 
predefined number of new authcntication requests as soon as the last one 
is accepted or rejected?
