  Hi,

Here is the config file for eap_psk on hostapd side:
eap_psk.conf
driver=madwifi
interface=ath0
bridge=br0
eap_server=1
ssid=eap_psk_test
ieee8021x=1
eap_user_file=/etc/hostapd.eap_user
logger_stdout=-1
logger_stdout_level=0

then I got the following log after lauching hostapd
[root at localhost hostapd-0.4.9]# hostapd -d
eap_psk.conf
Configuration file: eap_psk.conf
Configure bridge br0 for EAPOL traffic.
Using interface ath0 with hwaddr 00:17:9a:0c:0a:fb and
ssid

[root at localhost hostapd-0.4.9]#

On wpa_supplicant side, the config file used is: 
eap_psk.conf
ap_scan=1
network={
	ssid="eap_psk_test"
	key_mgmt=IEEE8021X
	eap=MD5
	identity="psk"
	eappsk=0123456789abcdef0123456789abcdef
}

and the obtained log:

C:\cygwin\home\root\wpa_supplicant-0.4.9>

wpa_supplicant sees the network eap_psk_test but it
doesnt take it as a suitable AP

I tried also with eap_leap. On hostapd side, I edited
the /etc/hostapd.eap_user file as follow

"leap"	LEAP	"leap"

[root at localhost hostapd-0.4.9]# hostapd -d
eap_leap.conf
Configuration file: eap_leap.conf
Unsupported EAP type 'LEAP' on line 33 in
'/etc/hostapd.eap_user'
1 errors found in configuration file 'eap_leap.conf'
[root at localhost hostapd-0.4.9]#

It seems that the EAP integrated server doesnt support
LEAP method.

Thanks for your help,
Best regards,
