Hi all,

Having some issues with wpa_supplicant and hostapd. wpa_supplicant
authenticates with a Netgear router just fine using WPA-PSK and a
passphrase. But with a linux box running hostapd 0.5.8 I get the
following in the debug output of wpa_supplicant:

--- snip ---
WPA: Association event - clear replay counter
EAPOL: External notification - portEnabled=0
EAPOL: External notification - portValid=0
EAPOL: External notification - EAP success=0
EAPOL: External notification - portEnabled=1
EAPOL: SUPP_PAE entering state CONNECTING
EAPOL: SUPP_BE entering state IDLE
Setting authentication timeout: 10 sec 0 usec
RTM_NEWLINK, IFLA_IFNAME: Interface 'ath0' added
EAPOL: startWhen --> 0
EAPOL: SUPP_PAE entering state CONNECTING
EAPOL: txStart
WPA: drop TX EAPOL in non-IEEE 802.1X mode (type=1 len=0) Wireless
event: cmd=0x8b15 len=20
Wireless event: new AP: 00:00:00:00:00:00
Setting scan request: 0 sec 100000 usec
Added BSSID 00:17:3f:14:7b:32 into blacklist
State: ASSOCIATED -> DISCONNECTED
--- snip ---

It is these lines that make think there is a problem somewhere.
EAPOL: txStart
WPA: drop TX EAPOL in non-IEEE 802.1X mode (type=1 len=0) Wireless
event: cmd=0x8b15

I have tried various config settings for hostapd.conf. I always get
this. I have set eap_server=1 and ieee8021x=1

My question is should I be using 0.6.0? Or is there some other thing
setting I need.

My configuration file looks like this:


interface=wlan0
driver=devicescape
debug=1
dump_file=/tmp/hostapd.dump
ctrl_interface=/var/run/hostapd
ctrl_interface_group=0
ssid=test
channel=7
macaddr_acl=0
auth_algs=1
ieee8021x=1
eap_server=1
eap_user_file=/etc/hostapd.eap_user
own_ip_addr=127.0.0.1
wpa=1
wpa_passphrase=secret-code
wpa_key_mgmt=WPA-PSK
wpa_pairwise=TKIP CCMP

Thanks,
Ed
