Question wicd wpa


I have an issue regarding wicd (using 1.6.2.2).
At school they use wpa.
the configuration is
Code:
eapol_version=2
    ap_scan=1
    fast_reauth=1
    network={
          ssid="University"
          key_mgmt= WPA-EAP IEEE8021X
          eap=TTLS
          identity="yourNetname"
          password="yourPassword"
          phase2="auth=PAP"
    }
Therefore I created a template for wicd like this
Code:
    name = CONU
        author = rssn6
        version = 2

        require identity *Identity password *Password
        -----
        ctrl_interface=/var/run/wpa_supplicant
        eapol_version=2
        ap_scan=1
        fast_reauth=1
        network={
        ssid="$_ESSID"
        key_mgmt= WPA-EAP IEEE8021X
        eap=TTLS
        identity=$_IDENTITY
        password=$_PASSWORD
        phase2="auth=PAP"
        }
with some help from the wicd's forum.
But the problem is it doesn't work.
At wicd's forum there was no replies for while...

Please help me out.

Yea I'll believe that, there were bugs even with nm-applet with IEEE8201X until just recently. I personally found that wicd sucked, and so my solution was to use nm-applet. It sucks a little bit too, but so long as you don't need VPN or anything like that, recent versions seem to have been sufficient.

Look at /etc/wicd/encryption/templates, create a file named rssn6 (it will be 'your' template, name it at your pleasure), put your wpa_supplicant information directly on 'your' template, add 'your' template name to '/etc/wicd/encryption/templates/active'.

Try something like:

Quote:
author = rssn6
version = 2

require identity *Identity password *Password
-----
ctrl_interface=/var/run/wpa_supplicant
eapol_version=2
ap_scan=1
fast_reauth=1
network={
ssid="University"
key_mgmt= WPA-EAP IEEE8021X
eap=TTLS
identity=yourname
password=yourgeneratedpassword
phase2="auth=PAP"
}
Don't remember if you'll need to restart the daemon. You should have 'your' template listed. Try connecting. If it fails, enable verbose debug log (prefs/advsettings/enabledebuglog) and adjust 'your' template if needed, like adding quotes to name and password, etc.

I had the chance to test it and the error was present because the quotation marks should be applied in the user/password.


Code:
identity="$_IDENTITY"
password="$_PASSWORD"
the rest is good.
Thank you all for replying.
