Hi,

I installed OPENSUSE 12.3 with DHCP network, which doesnt work as our institution uses
the 802.1x authentication protocol with the following parameters:

Security: WPA & WPA2 Enterprise
Authentication: Protected EAP (PEAP)
Anonymous identity:
CA certificate: (None)
PEAP version: Automatic
Inner authentication: MSCHAPv2


I have been therefore trying to set up 802.1x wired authentication on OPENSUSE v12.3 using wpa_supplicant.


In order to run wpa_supplicant, I prepared an
/etc/wpa_supplicant.conf file as follows

ctrl_interface=/var/run/wpa_supplicant
ctrl_interface_group=users
ap_scan=0
fast_reauth=1
network={
ssid=""
scan_ssid=""
key_mgmt=IEEE8021X
eap=PEAP
phase2="auth=MSCHAPV2"
identity="caandac"
password="mevlana"
}


and executed the wpa_supplicant command under /etc directory as

wpa_supplicant -D wired -i eth0 -c ./wpa_supplicant.conf -d


The execution of wpa_supplicant came out OK with no errors..
However, I still cant connect to network..

Does anyone know what I do wrong with 802.1x authentication set up?

Hi Cenk,

> I installed OPENSUSE 12.3

you have posted your question in the SLES (SuSE Linux Enterprise Server) networking forum - I suggest you re-post the question over at forums.opensuse.org (i.e. http://forums.opensuse.org/english/get-technical-help-here/network-internet/), which is where more of the openSUSE folks hang out. (Which doesn't say that you won't meet someone from here as well ;) ) FWIK, you can use the same credentials that you have created to log in to this forum.

The software levels differ between openSUSE and SLES, sometimes drastically, so answers you receive here may not apply to the latest openSUSE at all.

With regards,
Jens
