I see. The test 4.1.1. requires config method without PBC.

I expected connection of AP+Registrar (i.e. without external Registrar) and
Enrollee (Enrollee is just STA, not AP). The AP has only PBC method
because it is a headless device. The physical device of the AP has only a
button and some LEDs.
I will try to find out better way.
