I was unable to reproduce this. Are you sure you built all files of
hostapd after changing .config? Please try running "make clean; make" to
make sure the hostapd binary is built using the correct configuration.


There has been number of cleanups in RADIUS server only operation in
0.6.x branch (driver=none is now used instead of test) and there was
also couple of fixes to EAP-SIM that you may want to get and as such, I
would recommend considering version 0.6.6 instead of 0.5.11.
