    Unhappy How to use xsupplicant to connect to a 802.1x network?

    Hi,

    I know the 802.1x network is usually used for wireless network, but my company used it for a wired network...

    In windows, I need a certification file to access my company's wired network. I have used the 'openssl pkcs12' tool to convert a .pfx file used in windows to .pem file, which is needed in Linux. But I do not know how to configure the /etc/xsupplicant/xsupplicant.conf file...

    My knowledge to this network system is very limited. Please some one help me!


    Thanks,
    David

    Can you use wpa_supplicant? xsupplicant is very poorly supported -- their website has been updated in years!

    oh~~I searched with '802.1x' and 'wired network', and I see most results are about xsupplicant, so I think it is more up to date

    thanks for reply. I will try later

    Re: How to use xsupplicant to connect to a 802.1x network?

    I tried my best...but without luck. Actually, my pc is behind a ISA firewall. But on ubuntu, it is shown as a "wired 802.1x" network. I just wonder if it is possible to use wpa_supplicant to connect to a ISA server?
    Or, how can I set up my linux to work with ISA. Of cursor, I know how to browser the web using a proxy. But for other tasks, e.g. apt-get, that proxy just won't work. I do not have control over the ISA server, so I want to know if we have something like a ISA Client in linux.


    Thanks!
