802.1x and NetworkManager

Asked by Spenser Gilliland on 2007-05-02

To whom it may concern,
We have a 802.1x PEAP with an MsChapv2 tunnel Network here at Baylor. It works under wpa_supplicant, but i was wondering how i set it up so that i can use both network manager and my wpa_supplicant file at the same time or better yet, just network manager. Here's my wpa_supplicant.conf.

#Airbear connect

network={

        ssid="AIRBEAR"

        scan_ssid=1

        key_mgmt=IEEE8021X

        eap=PEAP
 phase2="auth=MSCHAPV2"

        identity="****************"

        password="*******************"
}

#these lines are in my /etc/network/interfaces

   iface eth1 inet dhcp
       wpa-driver wext

       wpa-conf /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf
 #this is the correct path

I know this is available in the 6.5 release of networkmanager, however i cannot get it to install due to dependency hell. On the same note, if 6.5 can be backported to feisty that would be very very good. I'm trying to recommend Ubuntu here, but cant really until everyone can get on the on the campus wireless without my work around.

(btw yes trey are Microsoft radius severs)

Thanks,
Spenser
