Hello,

I am experimenting with wpa-supplicant and hostap for certificate
based authentication. I am trying to connect my client using
wpa_supplican using EAP-TLS for authentication. Here's my
wpa-supplicant conf file:

    ctrl_interface=/var/run/wpa_supplicant
    network={
    key_mgmt=WPA-EAP
    eap=TLS
    scan_ssid=1
    ca_cert="/home/mranga/openssl/ca.crt"
    client_cert="/home/mranga/openssl/client.crt"
    private_key="/home/mranga/openssl/client.key"
    }

And here's the hostapd config file


    interface=ap1-wlan1
    driver=nl80211
    ssid=simplewifi
    wds_sta=1
    hw_mode=g
    channel=1
    ap_isolate=1
    eap_server=1
    logger_syslog=-1
    logger_syslog_level=0
    ca_cert=/home/mranga/openssl/ca.crt
    server_cert=/home/mranga/openssl/server.crt
    private_key=/home/mranga/openssl/server.key
    ctrl_interface=/var/run/hostapd
    ctrl_interface_group=0


I see the following in my wpa_supplicant log file

    sta1-wlan0: Selecting BSS from priority group 0
    sta1-wlan0: 0: 02:00:00:00:02:00 ssid='simplewifi' wpa_ie_len=0
rsn_ie_len=0 caps=0x401 level=-36 freq=2412
    sta1-wlan0:    skip - no WPA/RSN proto match
    sta1-wlan0: No suitable network found


Any clues about what may be going on with this? I hope  I am posting
this question to the appropriate mailing list.

Thanks, Ranga
