RE: WPS support in wpa_supplicantHi,

  I applied wps patch(dated 15th August 2008) against wpa_supplicant-0.5.10. I successfully compiled it. I am using marvell driver gspi8686. I am enabling wpa_supplicant as below.

 ./wpa_supplicant -Dwext -ieth0 -c./wpa.conf -w -ddd

I have following doubts:

1. Whether I need AP that supports WPS or Is there a way to test without using AP?

2. Whether I should change something in gspi8686 driver?

  I posted (*) a patch against version 0.5.10 of the supplicant and a brief document describing how to build and use WPS. Which wireless device do you want to use? The biggest missing piece is the device driver needs to pass the WPS IE from probe responses to the supplicant's driver. If you are interested in adding this support, I'd be happy to describe the type of change you'd need to do.

  Hi All,

     I saw in some places discussion about WPS patches for wpa_supplicant. Also in one of the discussions Jouni has mentioned the he had removed WPS support in wpa_supplicant due to legal threat from his previous employer.

   Can any one let me know whether any recent versions of wpa_supplicant supports WPS?
  If  not please let me know how easy it is to implement WPS in wpa_supplicant and also which documents/drafts I should refer to implement WPS in wpa_supplicant.
