Generator Microsoft Word 11 (filtered medium) Hello,

We use m0n0wall at our studentassociation for quite a while now and we are very happy with it. It
allowed us to use this instead of a expansive osfp router. My knowledge of m0n0wall is therfore
slightly more than average, because I' ve used it for a while.

Now I' d like to use m0n0wall at home but my provider decided to use 802.1x. For windows internet
connection my provider supplies a program called secureW2. They don' t support linux. No, they even
dare say it won' t work with Linux. Which is not true because I got it working with linux using
wpa-supplicant (xsupplicant also works but is less stable). Now I wonder if there are any plans for
m0n0wall to support the 802.1x authentication protocol (md5 first stage, ssl ttls second stage) ?
This means the WAN side must support it. I' d really like to use m0n0wall because I' d like to make
use of it' s ipsec tunnel functions. By splitting this over two tears it costs me more hardware,
more electra (waste of environmental resources) etc.  thus my question!

If I have missed anything (meaning it is already possible but I am unaware of it, please don' t kill
me but rather show me the lightJ )

Many thanks,

Robert Nagtegaal
