Thanks! Two more queries, if I may:
1) Should I at least assume that if I use hostapd as RADIUS, 
EAP-TTLS/EAP-TLS is supported, but only if I use one set of ca, server 
and user certificates/key?; and
2) If I do *not* use hostapd as authentication server (and use external 
RADIUS instead), wish to perform EAP-TTLS/EAP-TLS authentication, use 
two pairs of ca, server and user certificates/key then I presume all 
negotiations between the (wireless) client and RADIUS are passed to 
RADIUS by hostapd, thus allowing authentication process to be concluded, 
is that correct (I am also assuming that hostapd is installed on the
