I've digged into the archive, but could not find any responses to Ron's
question in november.

"Is it possible to run hostapd on wired machine ? or bind hostapd to
wired interface ?"

We would like to authenticate wireless users but AP does not have 802.1x
hostapd code seems to be using some information from kernel driver.

Has anybody tried something like that.

Comments/suggestions appreciated.
