Hello you all!

(I have been a system/network administrator for about a decade now, but I
am actually a newbie when it comes to hostapd, so please apologize me if I
am asking something you take for granted)

I would like to use hostapd as an integrated RADIUS/EAP server on a
Linksys AP; its neighbour Ethernet switch also supports 802.1X, so I am
planning to use for both wireless and wired authentication. My question
is: is it possible to use hostapd as a caching proxy RADIUS server? And,
if so (I think I can), how?

Best regards, and thanks a lot for your help and patience
