Description Jacob Hunt 2008-12-04 19:07:19 EST
Description of problem:

GTC support is unavailable when you choose WPA2 -> PEAP in NetworkManager.
MSCHAP/v2 and CHAP are shown, even though GTC is included in wpa_supplicant.  

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Select "WPA & WPA2 Enterprise" for wireless security
2. Select "Protected EAP (PEAP)" for authentication
3. GTC in unavailable for Inner Authentication
Actual results:

I can chose "MSCHAPv2" or "MD5"

Expected results:

The ability to chose "GTC"

Additional info:

This is basically a copy of bz451027, but since that bug was submitted on Fedora 8 which is close to end of life, I wanted to keep it open since it still doesn't work on Fedora 10.

I also have noticed this issue. I have filed a bug on the Gnome bugtracker, for NetworkManager: http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=565065


I am trying to use Fedora 10/Intel 5300 on a Aruba based wireless network,
which uses GTC for the inner authentication. I see this option no longer exists
in the version of NM that I have:

Out of curiosity, I used GIT to get the latest source (as of Dec. 18, 2008),
and see the following in libnm-util/nm-setting-8021x.c:

 950         { "gtc", NULL, NULL },  // FIXME: implement

So, it appears GTC is not implemented in NM, even though wpa_supplicant
supports it. Are there any patches available that allow this to work? This
seems to be a regression from version 0.6.x (I don't know the exact version I
was using before).

Seeing this comment in the source, it seems to be a known issue. I'm filing it
here as it appears to be in NM proper, not just the distribution specific
version I have. Is the lack of GTC actually the case, and will this be
implemented? Are there any known workarounds other than not using NM?


This is a relatively common inner authentication option for businesses, support would be highly appreciated!
