Hi Gunter,
this was not the posting you wanted to answer to.
Has someone successfully tested RSN PRE-authentication ? Jouni?
The part transferring the new key to the PMKSA cache works on the
wpa_supplicant and hostapd, but then how can I trigger the roaming to
the new hostapd ?

Changing "iwpriv wlan0 host_roaming" to 0,1 or 2 does not seem to change
anything. Running "iwconfig wlan0 ap <new ap>" does not trigger the
802.1x authentication on the new hostapd. So how is it done? I could not
find it in the readme.

Please help :-)
