Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 213115
NetworkManager should support more options for TTLS (e.g. the choice of secondary authentication method)
Last modified: 2008-05-06 12:38:07 EDT
Description of problem:
EAP-TTLS supports various secondary auth schemes. In NM, once TTLS is selected,
there's no choice of secondary auth method (PAP, CHAP, MS-CHAP, etc.) and its
parameters. The same screen is re-used for TLS and TTLS, instead of letting the
user to completely specify the parameters of tunneled auth method.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 0.6.4-5.fc6
How reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Click on NM applet
2. Add network
3. Enter ESSID, select WPA ENTERPRISE
4. Select TTLS
No choice for secondary auth method. Presents both TLS and TTLS parameters (auth
private key for TLS AND login/password for TTLS) on the same screen.
Should present TTLS-specific parameters including the choice of secondary
authentication method and its parameters (scheme-specific). The config screen
should also be cleaned up to disable the entry of unrelated (TLS) parameters.
