This is my first post and just wanted to say LinuxQuestions.com has been an excellent resource and I delve into the world of Linux.
I won't call myself a "n00b" but I am new and know when to ask for help.
With that said, here's the situation:
My college has a wireless network: awesome.
IT doesn't support Linux at all
, which keeps status quo.
Here's the information they do provide regarding connecting to the network:
Network Name or SSID (case-sensitive): TTUnet
Network Security or Authentication: WPA2 Enterprise
Data Encryption: AES
EAP Type: PEAP/MS-CHAP-V2
When prompted for user credentials, use the following:
User Name: your eRaider username
Password: your eRaider password
Don't worry about the eRaider stuff, I know all of that.
Because of the AES encryption, I can't use wicd. Wicd works great and I love it but it can only do TKIP PEAP/MSCHAPV2. I've tried, no joy.
Here's my wpa_supplicant.conf, with other wireless networks edited out:
# This line enables the use of wpa_cli which is used by rc.wireless
# if possible (to check for successful association)
# By default, only root (group 0) may use wpa_cli
identity="TTU\Username" #also tried "Username@TTU" "TTU/Username" "Username@TTU.edu"
The certificate is provided by Equifax Secure Global eBusiness CA-1 (verified from instructions and from Windows-PCs & Macs boxes that connect). I've found several off the net, converted to .pem and cat'ed into one "all.pem" file
I then run the following commands:
killall -HUP wpa_supplicant
wpa_supplicant -B -c/etc/wpa_supplicant.conf -iwlan0
then check everything with
iwconfig shows it associated with "TTUnet"
and try to pull a lease with
dhcpcd -k wlan0 ### if need be
It times out, and I end of successfully connecting to myself with a 169.x.x.x I'll post full results of ifconfig and iwconfig later, I'm in Windows now.
Please advise if you've connected to a similar network or dealt with the same certificate.
