Hi all,


I am trying to get hostapd to act as an authenticator
between an external Radius server a Windows client
doing EAP-TTLS MD5.  I have verified that the Radius
server and Windows client work using another
authenticator.

I am seeing "[PRISM2_IOCTL_HOSTAPD]: Invalid argument
Failed to set encryption." output when I set wpa=1 in
hostapd.conf.  Is this pritout normal?  Can anyone
give me a clue as to what might be wrong?  

I am using hostap and hostapd 0.2.6.
wifi0: NIC: id=0x8013 v1.0.0
wifi0: PRI: id=0x15 v1.1.1
wifi0: STA: id=0x1f v1.7.4

I've insmod hostap, hostap_pci, hostap_crypt,
hostap_crypt_tkip, hostap_crypt_ccmp

hostapd.conf changes
