#172 closed defect (fixed)

trax hiccup - 'HelpDesk' link fail?

Reported by: morrowc@… Owned by: rob@…
Priority: tbd Milestone:
Component: wireless Keywords:
Cc: My Current Location:
My MAC Address: My OS:

Description

There's a link at the bottom of:
<http://noc.meeting.ietf.org/wiki/IETF78network/wireless-instructions?version=1>

to 'HelpDesk??' which goes to:
<http://noc.meeting.ietf.org/wiki/HelpDesk>

which fails :( boo... also, linux instructions would be nice, as it's not at all obvious how to setup wireless 1x auth.

Things like:

o select TTLS
o select authentication type "mschapv2"
o put in userid into 'username'
o put in passwd into 'password'
o accept the 'there is no CA cert' error/warning

(note that the above isn't working, for me at least)

Is there a copy of the CA cert somewhere to download and accept/insert/use? Are there some basic descriptions that'd fit here instead? (I get that not everyone's using NetworkManager?, but the windows/mac instructions don't fit well with linux semantics)

I should have included the options I've attempted so far:

(anon-id and userid set to my reg-id, from my badge. The quoted section is what wpa_supplicant.log says is happening, this is only attempting to connect to the 1x, not -a1x. The platform is ubuntu lucid)

Trying to use the WinXP instructions:

o peap + mschapv2 + anon/id && uname && passwd

'Authentication with 00:17:df:aa:32:04 timed out.'

o peap + mschapv2 + uname && passwd

'Authentication with 00:17:df:a2:92:16 timed out.'

o ttls + mschapv2 + uname + passwd

'Authentication with 00:17:df:a2:92:16 timed out.'

Unfortunately the Linux instructions are a quagmire of Distro+supplicant. Writing instructions for any one distro /and or client would just make using another distro/supplicant combos even more confusing.
Which is why I chose to just direct Linux users to the help desk.
If you think there is a common instruction set for Linux I am happy to post it.

The accidental link to helpdesk has been fixed

some of the options/settings would sure be nice to capture on the wiki pages :( I'll stop by the helpdesk though once morning sessions are done.

great, thanks!

howdy... so the linux words to use is:

o peap
o mschapv2
o full 10-digit registration-id (6 digit fails, always) as the username
o passwd (ietf)
o accept the 'no ca cert' warning message

hope that helps (note that apparently the above only works on ietf-a1x, and this is on Ubuntu-Lucid)

I have added wpa_supplicant instructions with a verified config. It is the geek core of most of the GUI based tools today. Hopefully it conveys all the information needed to enter in various *nix/bsd distros

Chris,

It seems like this ticket is resolved. Shall we leave it open to ensure continued connectivity. Or should I close it and we can open a new tickets if additional issues occur?
