    wired networking and PEAP


    Hi, i can't set up my network configuration
    Details: well I have a wired network connection, NOT wireless and the ISP is using some sort of windows server or whatever...
    The fact is, that I can't handle the authentication, i get my IP by using dhcpcd, but for authentication i should use Protected EAP (PEAP) with password secured EAP-MSCHAP v2.

    Well, on internet i found out tools such as: wpa_supplicant, xsupplicant
    I can't configure with them my network, and I guess they are meant for wireless networking not for wired.

    My question is: what tools should i use, cuz i'm out of ideas or am i passing something by.

    Thanks!


    Here is my wpa_supplicant configuration file( if it matters):

    eapol_version=1
    ap_scan=1
    fast_reauth=0

    network={
    key_mgmt=IEEE8021X
    eap=PEAP
    identity="myLoginName"
    password="myPasswd"
    phase1="peaplabel=0"
    phase2="auth=MSCHAPV2"
    }

    yesss!
    I did it. How? With wpa_supplicant, just had to change the order, had to start wpa_supplicant and then dhcpcd, not the oposite as i did before It is kinda funny, but the problem is solved, so don't bother and thanks!
