I am trying to authenticate a client machine connected to hostapd via
LAN. I set up configuration files for HostAP accordingly.

My LAN authentication HostAP doesn't execute WPA(4 way handshake). Is
HostAP not supposed to get to authenticated state when authenticating
a client connected via LAN?
I have also seen the code ,seems like WPA is not present for wired networks.
Following are my logs:
