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?
