I am trying to test interworking (802.11u) using hostapd and wpa_supplicant development version.
I am using openwrt and compile hostapd with CONFIG_INTERWORKING compile option and flash access point.
The purpose of using interworking to help client to select right hotspot network. To make simple test I set asra bit so that user can authenticate using Web Authentication/WISPr. I set following parameter in hostapd.conf for interworking.
Using Wireshark sniffer I can see all these parameters are part of beacon and working fine.
I set interworking=1 in wpa_supplicant.conf. For Web Authentication/WISPr I don't think any other parameter of interworking is useful in this. I also set
Now problem is that interworking=1 alone does not help wpa_supplicant to select right network. As I presume there are many Roaming Consortium ID in network. Then which parameter help supplicant to select "HomeNet" or any other SSID which have roaming_consortium as 2233445566.
There is any parameter in wpa_supplicant.conf which I can set to 2233445566 and it will connect to same SSP irrespective to SSID.
