possible bug: 802.1x not working in debian

Postby marsdr » 2020-09-21 13:25

Hello!

I've set up a freeradius server and have a cisco switch and got 802.1x authentication working on a windows supplicant. However, when i try to use a debian supplicant it just gets me to enter my credentials for a while, then i have to reenter after 30 sec or something like that. I never get connected. I've used the exact same setup as before, peap with no CA cert. needed and peap version is auto. , mschapv2 and entered my user.

I've checked the log on the freeradius server, nothing there but on the other hand it doesn't show anything for windows either, and that works. I've checked in the switch and it sends and recives some frames etc.

So how can i continue troubleshooting from here? or is it a bug in debian? i've done everything correctly as far as i can tell.

I should add that we are talking about a wired connection.

Check your hardware and driver with
Code: Select all
lspci -k

Then search the interweb for problems with that combination. It's probably a buggy driver.

Also check the systemd journal for any clues.
