Last modified: 2013-08-01 05:24:03 EDT
Description of problem:
I am using kde. Trying to connect to an AP which
uses WPA2, I get an error
Error adding connection: client-cert.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. click on network manager icon
2. click on new AP name which is protected with WPA2
3. get prompted with a large window
it says security WPA/WPA2 enterprise
authentication is set to tls by default
4. change private key password to always ask
4. click ok
a window appears saying
"Error adding connection: client-cert."
get prompted for password then try to connect
(this is how this worked in F15)

"WPA/WPA2 Enterprise" + "TLS" means that rather than authenticating with a password, you authenticate with a client-side TLS certificate (which might be password-protected on your local machine, but that's totally different than using a password to connect to the network). Based on the rest of your description, I'm guessing this is wrong? It should have defaulted to plain old "Password" auth instead?
(Either way, there is another bug, which is that if you have "TLS" selected as the auth type, it shouldn't let you close the dialog until you have selected a certificate to use with it.)
This message is a reminder that Fedora 17 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 17. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '17'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 17's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 17 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora, you are encouraged change the
'version' to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 17's end of life.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
Fedora 17 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2013-07-30. Fedora 17 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
